The audit findings prove that there are still unresolved issues and much remains to be done in wastewater discharge and treatment. Several problems identified such as storm-water drainage, the use of sludge, low number of connections to district sewerage systems, and management of decentralised sewerage systems have been known for many years. Despite the fact that one has invested one billion euros in the improvement of district sewerage systems in wastewater management, the solution to those problems is still relevant. Solutions have either not been developed or have not been effective enough to address those issues.
Is the action of municipalities in organising the collection, discharge, and treatment of wastewater economic and focused on protecting the environment against the harmful effects of urban wastewater?
