ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is the identification of financial cost of wastewater treatment
technology/plant prior to discharge into river Lumbardh of Prizren municipality

The identification of actual condition of the sewerage(Canal network) of the
municipality of Prizren, calculation of the quantity and the quality of the waters of the
(sewerage) before discharging it in the river Lumbardh, is the essence of this study. So
that later it can be possible to plan the different locations for putting the equipment and
the technology for treating the polluted waters in this municipality.1

The definition of the polluted waters, their quality, the level of the access of citizens in
percentage in the canalization (sewerage) network are some of the essential parameters
for projecting the quantity of equipment and proposing the adequate techniques and
technology for treating the polluted waters.

To come to the definition of these determining parameters for analysis three points are
chosen for taking the samples in the municipality of Prizren; Zone 1: The zone of the
southern basin (pond) in the new pipe installed DN 1000 / DN 1200 the main collector
along the main road to Landovica, Zone 2: The Old municipality in the left bank of the
river and Zone 3: The centre of the city in the main canal on the right bank of the river
Lumbardh. The costs for Option 2 and Option 3 are quite smilar in having the same
capacity and treatment processes.

Investments costs for Option 1 are 3,5 Mio. EUR (10% higher than for Option 2 & 3).
Operational costs are also higher (+ 4 %) for Option 1. Option 1 may be considered and
recommended as the most economical choice. The results taken from these points are
compared with European standards of parameters which are determining for the level of
pollution of polluted waters before discharging them in rivers.
