The aim of the project "Intensification and reconstruction of water treatment plants Podebrady is increasing capacity and improving raw water treatment technology in order to avoid deficiencies in the quality of drinking water supplied.

Recently, there was made new connection of group water mains from Nymburk – Chotuc and Cineves. The attachment of Kouty and Umyslovice is under preparation. "Long-term measurements show that in the period from March to April and then from June to September there is an increase in water consumption. The value of an average consumption of several hours reaches 125 l / s. This results in incomplete removal of iron from the treated water, "said Petera. Increasing the capacity of the water treatment plant to 160 l / s will clear up these difficulties.
In addition to the exchange of a technological line there will be a reconstruction of operational buildings. Thermal insulation of roofs and facades, window replacement and reconstruction of the gas boiler for heat pump will reduce the energy intensity of building.
The project is financed a total of almost 145 million CZK (without VAT) involving the Ministry of Agriculture, which provided the amount of approximately 41 miles.
