ASSOCIATION OF EXPERIENCED ENGINEERS

IN THE SERVICE OF YOUNG COLLEAGUES

The world is faced with the harsh reality of a lack of safe drinking water.

 

A striking example is the area of Vojvodina, where the population, in the 21st century, is struggling with a lack of water, low-quality water and all the other adversities that follow from the aspect of drinking water.

 

It is indisputable that the inhabitants of Vojvodina are hostages of the home-made solution of using underground water for water supply that cannot be purified or purified with unreasonably high exploitation costs, as well as by constant drilling of new wells.

 

With the gift of nature, primarily the rivers Drina and Rzav, from its hinterland, Serbia can completely solve the unfavorable state of water supply in Vojvodina as well as in Sumadija.

 

Even more, this fact allows Serbia to position itself as an exporter of clean drinking water to Hungary, Romania, and Croatia.

 

The basic intention of company Drago Projekt is simple, Serbia must save its underground water (aquifer)  for the future (times of crisis) when there will be no drinking water, and above all the underground water of Vojvodina.

 

Water supply proposal for Vojvodina and Belgrade

Professional staff of Drago Projekt d.o.o. in cooperation for prof. Dr. Lazar Jovanović, Bachelor of Civil Engineering. drafted a proposal for water supply to Vojvodina and Belgrade from the domicile river Drina.

 

Three reasons lie in this name:

 

  1. The Drina is a completely clean river without any industrial or infrastructural pollution with an average flow, at the mouth of the Sava, between 400 and 650 m3/s and at the lowest water level around 200 m3/s,
  2. Vojvodina would permanently solve its supply of healthy drinking water and could even export water to Croatia, Hungary and Romania, whose lowland parts also do not have drinking water.
  3. Belgrade is supplied with drinking water directly from the Sava River, i.e. from wells that collect Sava water. By supplying water from the Drina, they would prevent the eventual breakdown of the "Krško" nuclear power plant, which is cooled by water from the Sava River.

 

According to the above for the water supply of Vojvodina (and the export of water to Croatia, Hungary, and Romania) it led to 20 m3/s.

For Belgrade, they would provide a safe 10 m3/s.

 

According to the conceptual solution of Drago Projekt d.o.o. the realization price is approximately € 950 million.

 

An example of such an engineering solution is the realized regional water supply system "RZAV" (1993), which permanently supplied Western Serbia with healthy, potable water without any accidental pollution.

The trunk pipeline is 70 km long.

 

The initiators of the above proposal participated in the implementation of the "RZAV" system from the basic idea to the system's commissioning.

Engineering solutions have no alternative
