ZAGREB (Croatia), December 5 (SeeNews) - The European Commission is investing 64.3 million euro ($76.2 million) from the EU Cohesion Fund into a project for improving infrastructure for water management and treatment in the Varazdin agglomeration, in the north of Croatia. 

"Croatian households now have access to clean water thanks to our investment – this is a practical example of the value added by the European Union which cares about the environment and health of its citizens", commissioner for regional policy, Corina Cretu, said in a press release last week.

More than 200 km of sewer pipes and 108 pumping stations will be built as part of this project financed by the EU, which will benefit nearly 95 000 people.

The works are scheduled for completion in the autumn of 2021.
