About conference

Dear Madams and Sirs,

Every year the Croatian Water and Wastewater Association organizes an international business conference; this time it takes place from November 03.-07.11.2021.at Olympia Hotel,Vodice. We therefore invite you to discuss the state of issues in water supply, wastewater disposal and wastewater

treatment in Central and Southern Europe and beyond with a variety of water management experts this year.

The meeting takes place under the well-known title:

CURRENT ISSUES IN WATER SUPPLY AND SEWAGE

With this year\\'s event, the Croatian Water and Wastewater Group continues its tradition of organizing this conference, as it has done for more than 20 years - a meeting of experts from Central and Southern Europe on water supply, sewage and wastewater treatment. In line with the positive experiences so far, this year\\'s expert conference will be organized with the aim to present the latest technologies and insights and to hold expert meetings on water management.

It is certain that this year\\'s meeting will be marked by the new legislation in the Republic of Croatia, as the new Water Act and the Water Supply Act and the amendments to the Water Resources Financing Act have recently come into force. These laws have a major impact on the business of public water companies in the Republic of Croatia, so a round-table discussion will be devoted to this topic.

The issue of preparing and implementing EU projects in the water sector is increasingly attracting more and more participants to these demanding processes, which is why a round-table discussion is also being held at the expert meeting. It is already well-known that there are many problems in the preparation and implementation of major EU projects, which also affect the entire construction sector. We therefore believe that these discussions will also help improve the efficiency of such projects. There will be ongoing projects and investments presented, as well as the experiences of participants in their project implementation, thus helping to prepare and implement new projects to be expected in the near future.

At this thematic round table, representatives of water utility companies, relevant ministries, Hrvatske vode and other Croatian and foreign experts will discuss the state of play and prospects for the future development of this sector. In addition, a series of specialist lectures and presentations, discussions where everyone is expected to participate, and business presentations at the event are planned.

The guidelines of the conference are the following thematic units:

1. P ROBLEMS IN PREPARING AND IMPLEMENTING EU PROJECTS

2. TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC ASPECTS OF LOSSES IN WATER SUPPLY SYSTEMS

3. REMOTE READING OF WATER CONSUMPTION

4. SLUDGE PROCESSING AND TREATMENT IN WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANTS

5. QUALITY AND TREATMENT OF DRINKING WATER AND WASTEWATER QUALITY

6 MISCELLANEOUS

In adition to the presentation of technical papers, a substantial part of the expert conference will offer a varied accompanying programme such as the exhibition of products and services, as well as thematic workshops where institutions and companies will present their latest products and programmes in a pleasant atmosphere.

We believe that the topics presented at the expert meeting will greatly contribute to the improvement and implementation of activities necessary for major investment projects in the water sector and will also improve the business of the entire water and public utilities sector in the Republic of Croatia and beyond.

We herebly invite you to join us again this year and enrich the programme agenda with their participation and thus contribute to the further development of water supply and wastewater management in this part of the world.
