Water treatment facilities

Water treatment facilities are important in Varna which is Bulgaria’s third largest city. This city is the heart of summer tourism in the country. The municipality is littered with resorts. That is why water management is so critical there. Old water treatment facilities and inadequate regulations once made it impossible to cope with number of tourists in the area. However, reconstruction is now underway. Tourist in the beaches will enjoy clear water.

                One of the latest examples of this reconstruction is the Golden Sands waste water treatment plant.

Water treatment facilities was built in 1983 and has now been renovated. Its design is innovative. It is enclosed in concrete so nearby hotels and holidaymakers won’t be disturbed by the treatment.

Ivanka Borissova works for the Golden Sands water treatment facilities and water treatment plant. She tells us. “The plant was modernised and its capacity increased in 2020”. The plant now has a much larger capacity, it’s big enough for a population of over 72 000. Before its renovation it only had a capacity for a population of around 14 000.

               Other regulations were also factored into renovations.

Water discharge is now at a distance of 2200 meters from the shoreline. The old national standard was only 700 meters away.
