After the end of project the incidents along the water-supply network will be minimised and the huge water loss reaching as much as just over 60% will be avoided. The quality of water resource will improve. Water supply and sewerage systems will be brought into compliance with the European requirements. The expenditures on maintenance and repairs of water supply and sewerage networks are expected to decrease, and so are the energy expenditures related to water supply of household and industrial users.
