|DRINKADRIA Project Regional Meeting Held in Belgrade|
From October 25th to 28th, at the ˝Palace˝ Hotel and at the ˝Milutin Milanković˝ Association’s conference hall, the ˝Jaroslav Černi˝ Institute for the Development of Water Resources hosted a Regional Meeting of the partners and participants in the DRINKADRIA (Networking for Drinking Water Supply in Adriatic Region) international project. The meeting was attended by representatives of all 17 partner institutions from the Adriatic region countries – Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Serbia.
Together with the Belgrade Waterworks and Sewerage (BVK), the Institute organised a visit to the water treatment plant ˝Makiš˝ for all attendees of the meeting. As a part of the visit, they were shown a film on Belgrade waterworks, while Mr Marko Milačić from BVK, the WTP ˝Makiš 2˝ Implementation Project coordinator, gave a presentation on water production at WTP ˝Makiš˝. Mr Dušan Đurić, the Director of the Institute’s Department of Water Supply, Sewerage and Water Protection, gave a presentation on ˝Belgrade Waterworks’ Ground Water Source˝, whereas the Institute’s expert associates, Dr Dragan Vidović and Dr Boris Pokorni, presented the alluvial ground water sources programme. The guests described the visit as very useful and a great success.
DRINKADRIA Project’s main goal is to promote the access to water supply in the Adriatic basin area. For this purpose, the planned activities include the development of a protocol aiming at the improvement of water supply stability in cross-border water supply systems and all the other water supply systems and water sources shared by two or more entities, as well as at the establishment of an interactive web platform which would provide both the experts and the wider public with the access to data and information. It was assessed that the initial delay of the Project due to the time 17 partners needed to get organised, had been successfully compensated for in the meantime, and the leading partner, Trieste Waterworks, expressed their satisfaction in this regard. It was also agreed on that the next meeting would take place in Sarajevo, in February next year.
So far, this is the only project of its kind concerned with cross-border water supply and the implementation of certain measures in the total of 7 pilot areas. Serbia does not have its own pilot area, but nevertheless, the ˝Jaroslav Černi˝ Institute has accepted the Consultant role for the pilot area in Montenegro – the town of Nikšić waterworks. Additional results include informing the public about the importance of preserving drinking water and water sources for future generations, which requires printing various educational material such as brochures and fliers, organising expert meetings and workshops and producing presentations intended for the wider public.
Considering that the ultimate target group is the population of the countries in the region encompassed by the Project, organisation of National Workshops has been planned as well. The ˝Jaroslav Černi˝ Institute has so far organised one National Workshop - on the promotion of Serbian water supply systems’ efficiency – with two more workshops to be held by the end of the year. One of them will be on the issue of water quality.
