Nearly $ 2 billion for sewage treatment plants

According to the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia, in 2001 there were a total of 135 municipal wastewater treatment plants in Slovenia with a capacity of around 1,5 million population units. In 2018, there were already just over 500 municipal wastewater treatment plants, with a total capacity of 2,68 million population units. In recent years, the construction of treatment plants has been undertaken in several Podravska municipalities, and in the municipality of Rače-Fram they will face one of the largest investments during the existence of the municipality.
Approximately 447.000 inhabitants of Slovenia meanwhile live in areas outside the borders of agglomerations, where equipping with public sewerage or with municipal wastewater treatment plants is not prescribed. In areas outside the boundaries of agglomerations, the share of connection to the public sewerage network is 9,9%. The decree stipulates that if the wastewater from the household is not discharged into the public sewer, the installation of a small treatment plant is required next to the residential house by 31 December 2023 at the latest.
According to the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning, as much as EUR 2000 billion was earmarked for investments in the collection and treatment of municipal wastewater in Slovenia in the period from 2019 to 1,87.
