BELGRADE (Serbia), May 26 (SeeNews) - Serbia will build a new wastewater treatment plant worth 14.5 million euro ($15.5 milion) in the city of Pirot, the infrastructure ministry said.
The project, which also includes an overhaul of the sewerage network, has a total value of 16.2 million euro, the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
The new wastewater treatment plant will have the capacity to serve up to 52,000 residents, and the tendering process for the project is likely to be finalized by the end of 2022, the head of local water utility Vodovod i Kanalizacija Pirot, Zoran Nikolic, said.
