The international tender for the construction of a water factory in Kikinda, estimated at 10 to 12 million euros, which would be financed from favorable credit lines from the German Development Bank KfW, has been canceled.
– The procurement procedure for the activities planned on “The Design and Construction of a Water Plan in Kikinda on the Sumice Spring, With a Clean Water Reservoir and a Processed Water Pumping Station” was canceled on August 20 – the documentation says.
As said, the decision was reached in line with the guidelines from the German Development Bank KfW.
As the media reported earlier
, the water from the Kikinda water supply system is chemically unsafe even at the spring – it is yellowish, has an unpleasant smell, an increased temperature and ammonia concentration, organic matters, which is why it is treated with chlorine.
This goes against the rulebook on hygienic safety and makes it very difficult to process, but its use is not banned, so it is used by citizens, with free processed water from public fountains as an alternative.S. P.
