Purging Wastewater – a Priority for Romania
AbstractConsidering the global diminishing of water resources, treating and purging the waters represents a desideratum for all of us, as water quality is affected most of all by the spill of wastewater. Water is essential to life and the lack of it or drinking polluted water generates negative consequences for a person and his health. That is why EU lays emphasis on creating performing purging stations according to the latest quality standards. Of the 2,605 cities in Romania, only 505 are equipped with sewage systems, out of which only 18 are in concordance with the requirements of the European norm in this field. The percentage of connections to the sewage network was, in 2008, of 49.46% and by the end of 2010 it has to reach 60.8% - in order meet the terms of the EU agreement. Out of the already mentioned total number of cities, only 390 are served by 337 purging stations – only 14 of them are in concordance with the European norms and have the secondary level of purging. The year 2010 is the first deadline at which Romania has to report about the progress made with the implementation of the European Norm concerning the purge of wastewater. The public eye has to convince itself about the gravity of the current situation. The mass of the polluting substances we spill in waters grows each day and if no measures are to be taken in order to prevent this danger, the pollution today will be insignificant in comparison with the one from tomorrow.
