20. 11. 2023
Last week, we discussed with the Slovenian Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Damijan Sedar, and with the Mayor of the Municipality of Trnovo, Mr. Ibro Berilo, the completion of the project Construction of Waste Water Treatment Plant in the area of Bjelašnica and Igman, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In his introduction, the mayor presented the municipality of Trnovo and its development plans. In addition to the Bjelašnica sports center, more and more facilities are being built, which are co-financed by the municipality. The project started in 2018, and due to various reasons (COVID,...), the completion of the project was extended.
In order to protect the source of drinking water and also because of the extensive construction of tourist facilities, apartments, and hotels, the Municipality of Trnovo needed a new waste water treatment plant. Within the project, a plant with a capacity of 8,500 PE was built, which uses modern PVA MBBR technology ("Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor"). This is a waste water treatment process with attached biomass technology. A prefabricated facility was built in which the cleaning equipment was installed. The project aims to protect water resources and other watercourses in the areas of Bjelašnica and Igman. The construction of a treatment plant will affect the long-term and sustainable development of tourism and the protection of the largest drinking water source, "Vrela Bosna".
