PRVKUC

Program for the development of regional water distribution and sewer networks


 

   

Brief description

 

The program deals with the conceptual development of regional water distribution and sewer networks with a 15-year outlook. The "Development Program" has been elaborated in accordance with the Methodology Directions of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic, issued in June 1993.

The "Development Program" includes all cities, towns and other communities of the particular township and contains a summary of characteristics of the existing condition of water distribution and sewer systems, a summary of proposed projects, conceptual development solutions of individual communities, and an economic evaluation of the proposed development solutions. The program evaluates various alternatives of financing of capital projects and their impact on the water and sewage collection tariff.

The "Development Program" has been elaborated separately for water distribution systems and sewer systems but respects their relationships which ensue from the provision of drinking water and collection of a corresponding amount of wastewater, as well as the coordination of construction of both parts of the infrastructure in cities and towns.

 

   

Objectives

 

The "Development Program" assumes that the basic development of water distribution and sewer systems described below will be completed as of the target year:

  • provision of the required capacity of drinking water sources,
  • implementation of measures at existing sources in order to eliminate present problems with compliance with the ÈSN standard pertaining to drinking water,
  • implementation of proposed measures at waterworks and sewer systems in order to ensure compliance with valid recommendations, regulations and standards,
  • proposition of a water distribution and sewer system reconstruction program,
  • modernization of WWTPs
  • construction of new water distribution systems, sewer systems and wastewater treatment plants.

 

   

Content

 

The "Development Program" consists of:

  • background information regarding demographic development,
  • evaluation of the present conditions regarding drinking water supply and sewage collection,
  • calculation of drinking water demand and the production of wastewater,
  • proposal of required reconstruction of water distribution and sewer system facilities,
  • proposal of water distribution and sewer system development, including a time schedule,
  • specification of required capital and operation costs
  • calculation of the drinking water supply and sewage collection tariff while taking the proposed program into consideration.

Outputs

 

The "Development Program" output includes:

  • Print-out of all appendices.
  • The PRVKUC program is a "viewer" intended for the workers of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic, owner organizations and district authorities. It simplifies access to information regarding individual towns. The program provides a means of opening records containing all necessary demographic, technical and economic information regarding individual towns.
  • VYPVODOV database program - is intended for the maintenance and updating of the demographic and technical database which was created during the elaboration of the "Development Program". The program is intended mainly for operators of water distribution and sewer systems.
