The project measures will result in water supply system that is divided into supply and pressure zones, that can be operated more easily and effectively and that will provide for sufficient pressure and flow in all supply zones.

The existing transmission main is made of steel with diameter DN 400 and a length of around 3.000 m.
This transmission main will be partly disconnected (ca. 1.900 m), replaced (1.600 m) and newly laid (1.300 m) as DN 500.
In addition, new transmission lines DN 500 are laid to connect the Pumping Station with New East Reservoir (4.200 m) and the latter with the distribution network (4.200 km).
Total length of around 210 kilometres of distribution network (incl. house connections) has to be laid newly in the project. Its diameters vary from OD 25 (house connections) to DN 500.
