In order of optimization the managing system and promote effective local development DESPRO held a round table named «Drinking water supply in the village: challenges and plans of development». Discussion touched the most urgent issues on legal regulation of centralized drinking water supply in countryside. Since municipal engineering networks in Ukraine are worn out, as most of them were put into operation in Soviet times, there is a need of complete replacement of used networks to modern, due to international standards. Participation of the largest domestic and foreign manufacturers contributed to market saturation in this area. High quality products of largest European manufacturer of ceramic pipes and fittings for private, municipal and industrial sewerage systems – Steinzeug - Keramo, – were presented by International Association of Termoenergetic Companies.

As municipal utilities, industry and agriculture are main polluters of sewage and account over 90% of total wastewater, the cause of hidden emission of polluted wastewater is due to outdated sewage treatment plants use.
