Romania's historic accession to the European Union in 2007 brought with it a number of obligations, including the need to comply with EU environmental standards. Compliance will require Romania to make significant investments in its water and wastewater treatment infrastructure within the coming decade. In support of this monumental effort, the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) www.ustda.gov has agreed to fund a $339,400 feasibility study to assist the development of Tulcea's water and wastewater systems. The study will evaluate options for wastewater piping rehabilitation and drinking water disinfection systems within Tulcea County.
On November 2, 2009 CS Bucharest attended the Signing Ceremony of the contract between Aquaserv and the U.S. arm of the Halcrow company chosen to prepare the feasibility study.
Please note that USTDA looks forward to additional opportunities to work with Romanian project sponsors to develop capacity and infrastructure in ways that will achieve beneficial impacts for Romanian citizens.
