Project RO-0016

"Monitoring System of the quality of water intended for human consumption, produced and distributed by Romanian Company"

In Romania, the water intended for human consumption is obtained from surface water resources (90-92%) and underground water resources, and the existent systems of water supply cover only 65% from population consumption (97% for urban population). 

The treatment proceedings applied in Romania for potable water obtaining from natural sources are, generally, classic (pre-chlorination, coagulation/flocculation with aluminum sulphate, decantation/filtration on sand and disinfection with chlorine). The quality of water supplied by approx.1400 treatment & distribution plants of potable water (existent on the Romanian territory) not fulfill permanently the requirements established by regulation in force for chemical and microbiological parameters, existing this way a potential risk regarding the population health. 

Under the EEA Financial Mechanism, INCD ECOIND (Romania) and STIFTELSEN SINTEF (Norway) develop in partnership, a project for monitoring of potable water quality (from caching until production and distribution) supplied by two Romanian companies, which have, at regional level, monopoly on services of potable water production and distribution for at least 100,000 inhabitants.
