Tuesday, 09 September 2014
Bulgaria needs 12-24 bln levs to reconstruct its water supply and sewerage infrastructure, according to Rumen Arsov from the Hydro-technical Faculty of the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy (UACEG).
In a Monday interview for the morning broadcast of Bulgaria On Air TV, he explained that climate change had a global impact, adding that countries across the world were taking two types of precautionary measures, including soft measures (organizational) and hard measures (construction).
"The infrastructure which was replaced over the past 20+ years needs reconstruction. This takes time and a huge amount of financial resources and the state cannot afford it. It only makes partial allocations," Arsov stated, as cited by money.bg.
