MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLY AND WASTE WATERS
REPORT TITLE: Assessment and Development of Municipal Water and Wastewater Tariffs and Effluent Charges in the Danube River Basin:
Volume 1: An Overview of Tariff and Effluent Charge Reform Issues and Proposals
A comprehensive overview of the status of municipal drinking water supply and wastewater treatment in seven Danube countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. It assesses the theory and practice of water and wastewater service pricing, and effluent charge designs, as well as proposals for reforming MWWU bookkeeping, financing, management and institutions. It's a valuable handbook for policy-makers, MWWU managers, and municipal decision-makers, or anyone interested in the efficient provision of public water-related services and future MWWU challenges for reaching full-scale effluent reduction.
REPORT TITLE: Assessment and Development of Municipal Water and Wastewater Tariffs and Effluent Charges in the Danube River Basin: Volume 2: Country-Specific Issues and Proposed Tariff and Charge Reforms.
This volume consists of three documents for each of the above seven countries (21 documents total) covering water and wastewater systems. The first are national profiles discussing the legal, regulatory, economic and institutional setting of the sector, data about water and wastewater services and service providers, and key policy issues and challenges facing the water and wastewater service sectors of each country. The second document presents a case study covering one particular MWWU in each country, including the results of modelling reform proposals appropriate to that MWWU with the ASTEC model (see below). The third document is a summary focusing on the most important issues discussed in the national profile and the case study.
