Water is our responsibility. We supply drinking water to users through a modern water supply system according to the legislation and the latest supply standards. The drinking water is good quality and supplied to users continuously and safely.
The municipal treatment plants operate based on the latest mechanical and biological procedures for removing mechanical impurities, organic nutrients and nitrification. In this way we achieve the prescribed limit values of waste water parameters before being discharged into the environment.
