NECESSARY INFORMATION FOR PROJECTS IN THE FIELD OF WATER MANAGEMENT
(WATER SUPPLY AND WASTE WATER TREATMENT)


I. General information

In order to determine the context in which the projects are proposed it is necessary to have the following information:

·  Programme/plan to which the project or group of projects are linked (national, regional, local, catchement area) and where applicable the reference to the relevant environmental legislation;

·  Detailing of situation and localisation = project plan and schemes + map (1:100.000) sensitive areas, points of discharge;

·  Summary containing present data (infrastructure/inventory of the overall water quality aspects in the area/region concerned), problems and the solution(s)/effects aimed at by the project;

·  Plan of implementation of the project/financial plan;

·  "Economic" analysis and indication of operational and maintenance cost;

·  Indication of needs for vocational training if necessary;

·  (Pre) feasibility studies and other opinions (hydrological, health etc.).


II. Specific technical information

A. Water supply
