Name of Donor: SlovakAid
Project/Activity Partners: Water Research Institute (Slovakia)
Project Code: SAMRS/2018/VP/1/7
Project Activities:

  • Detailed analysis of the current state of the surface water quality status related to nitrogen and phosphorus contents and water quality data availability in Georgia.
  • Development of the Methodology for the establishment of sensitive areas in the river basin districts in Georgia.
  • Testing the Methodology for the establishment of sensitive areas in pilot river basin in Georgia
  • Development of the Methodology for the delineation of the agglomerations in Georgia according the EU Directive 91/271/EEC (three categories).
  • The delineation of the agglomerations according the methodology (2.1) in pilot river basin in Georgia
  • Calibration of mathematical models on the Georgian situation to calculate the investment costs for the construction of the UWWT plants and canalisation for three categories of agglomeration taking into account the sensitive areas.
  • Organisation of two workshops for decision makers and waste water treatment representatives in Georgia related to implementation of the EU Directive 91/271/EEC
  • Study visit of the waste water treatment representatives from Georgia in Slovakia.
    Main Objectives:  To increase the knowledge and understanding on the technical and economical requirements related to implementation of the EU 91/271/EEC Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive in Georgia. The specific objectives of the project relate to development and testing of the Methodology for establishment of the sensitive areas in the river basins and development and testing of the Methodology for delineation of the agglomerations in river basins in Georgia.
