Wastewater Management Decision Support Tool

The pilot action in Shkodra represents a suggestion on how to address wastewater related problems in the Shkodra region. Considering the high flood risk experienced by the city, the question of wastewater is linked to flood management plans. The city served as the area of reference for the testing of the WEMDST for Drin catchment. The exercise was parallel to the WEMDST development on the Drin basin level and should confirm the model's values.

The Shkodra scenarios were prepared after the technical consultation with city authorities in November 2018 (Mayor and members of the council), and  the main output of  the task is  the wastewater treatment solution causing minimum operating and maintenance costs.

Once finalized, the solution is to be presented to the municipality (Mayor and council), operators (public utility employees), and other responsible stakeholders. The municipality is responsible for engaging projects and funding donors/sources; operators are a part of the consultation and knowledge transfer process so they would be able to maintain and operate any future facilities.

There are 5 municipalities in Shkodra Region, which have emerged after the Administrative Territory Reform in 2015. Three of them are downstream of Drin River: Shkodra, Malesi e Madhe Municipality and Vau Dejes. Each of them has its own Water Supply and Sewage enterprise (public utility), which are new and lack wastewater collection data.
