Belgrade, 18th April 2018.

Representatives of the Delegation of the EU, JASPERS, Ministry of European Integration, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management (MAFWM) – Republic Water Directorate (RWD), PWMC Srbijavode and PPF6 met in the premises of MEI to discuss the progress and activities planned for the upcoming period for the selected EU PPF6 projects: Velika Morava, Loznica and Pančevo.

For Velika Morava Project, it has been agreed to update the ToR and prepare the structure of the Preliminary Design Report (PDR) to indicate more clearly what the PDR will present in the final version. The PDR will be used as the main project milestone to discuss further project development. Srbijavode emphasized that Velika Morava project is fully in line with the long-term water management strategy of Serbia and it has exceptionally high socio-economic importance for the whole country because it should conceptualize the monitoring and SCADA systems in the Velika Morava river basin from the integrated water management point of view.

Data collection and site surveys are ongoing for Loznica Project. Geodetic surveying of the wastewater collection system as well as wastewater flow measurement and sampling in Loznica has started. Draft demographic analysis has been completed. Development of PDR is in progress and it will be completed by the end of June 2018.

The obtained documentation for Pančevo town is quite comprehensive and it will allow better understanding of the existing situation. Data collection and development of PDR is in progress. The PDR will be completed by the end of July 2018.
