What are the short term objectives we hear you cry? Well, first of all we have the continued improvement of the water supply system monitoring. Along with this comes the installation of more energy-efficient water pumping facilities, as well as the optimisation of the water supply system operating mode under improved operating conditions. The people of Ljubljana will also continue to be informed about the use of modern environmentally friendly solutions in the field of water supply and waste water/rainwater drainage. The protection of water in general is of high importance over the next five years.
So how about the long-term objectives? The speeding up of repairs to the water supply network take up a good chunk of this, taking into account technical criteria for the planning and implementation of repairs. Continual education is also important, as people are informed more and more about the importance of long term conservation of natural water sources The security of drinking water supplies will be improved by researching and protecting new and reserve water sources.
Whilst the long-term objectives have a five year plus time frame, the aim is for everything to be in order by 2050. This comprises a major overhaul of the water supply network, no small task we're sure you understand. Still, the importance of making people aware of the consequences of irresponsible water use cannot be overstated.
