The project's results aim to improve water management on the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria through an updated information system, monitoring and control of water pollutants. The Information system will provide monitoring data on the basis of the permits issued and the risk calculation algorithm as well as a pollutant analysis supporting the measures against pollutants. As a result of collected and processed data, public funds will be saved and the responsible institutions will be required to carry out their work in a significantly more efficient way.

The project will raise public awareness and enable citizens to have a direct influence water monitoring and management. The project is expected to make problems’ planning easier and to pay attention to deeper monitoring of water management. The updated information system will be used as a tool for pooling activities between institutions, non-governmental organizations and associations, local, regional and national public administrations and all involved in the process.

Under European and national legislation, the Information system will be updated annually. Its subsequent day-to-day administration will be a demonstration of commitment to continuing the project activities not only by the beneficiary but also by all stakeholders. The purchased equipment will be used fully and regularly updated for the smooth operation and updating of the information system.

Duration of the project: until 23.12.2017
