November 21 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's ViK Pernik, the water utility servicing the towns on Pernik and Radomir, will rehabilitate their water supply networks with support from the European Union, the regional development ministry said on Thursday.
The company has already signed a contract under which it will receive over 100 million levs ($56.7 million/51.1 million euro) in funding under the EU's operational programme Environment 2014-2020, deputy regional development minister Nikolay Nankov said in a statement.
Pernik, in western Bulgaria, has been gripped by a severe water crisis due to dry wather in 2019 and the outdated water supply infrastructure in the region, the ministry said on Wednesday.
The poor condition of the water supply network in Pernik municipality which has not been rehabilitated for more than 50 years is to blame for up to 76% of water losses on the territory of the municipality.
(1 euro = 1.95583 levs)
