This project has improved the living conditions of Pristina inhabitants and those of surrounding municipalities and protects natural water resources as well. It specifically targeted:
In order to achieve these objectives, a new water source for Pristina had to be developed, focused on Gazivoda Lake. The water is abstracted from the Iber Channel, in the vicinity of Mihaliq, and then transported to a new water treatment plant in Shkabaj. After treatment, drinking water flows into two reservoirs in Pristina.
All construction works are completed; taking-over of works took place in March and May 2017, followed by a 12-months defect notification period.
The WBIF contributed, with an EU grant, to the preparation of the feasibility study. The new water supply systems also received a €4.9 million EU grant (IPA) to partially defray the construction costs.
