Water Supply in South East Kosovo (WSSEK)

High-quality water and sanitation services and improved governance of water and energy resources contribute to the living condition of the population, higher resilience to climate change and an improved state of the environment.
The former reservoir on Popovica Hill was dilapidated and of minimal capacity (500 m3) to accommodate the functions of a balancing reservoir in the water supply system of Gjilan. The new reservoir with a capacity of 4000m3 increases the resistance of the water supply system.
The drinking water supply and the water quality in Ferizaj was improved in two central neighborhoods through network rehabilitation and network extension. The methods of District Network Management were applied to attain sustainable results.
