Finally, the purchase of water meters, operation and maintenance equipment and machinery, and investments to improve ICT processes are also covered.
The project aims to improve the reliability and affordability of the water supply and wastewater management services, positively affecting people living in the Klaipėda service area. The investments will also support climate adaptation, mitigation, and environmental sustainability, as they will enable "Klaipėdos vanduo" to generate renewable energy, reduce its energy consumption, better cope with more frequent and intense rains due to climate change, and reduce groundwater and surface water pollution.
