Factors And Challenges Of Regionalization In The Water And Wastewater Sector
This paper investigates some general issues related to the opportunity of regionalization, involving the aggregation of several towns for the provision of drinking water and wastewater services, as well as some particular features and challenges of the process in Romania. The main driver for the aggregation/regionalization of utilities is usually the potential to realize economies of scale by providing services to a larger customer base and at a lower cost, also increasing the size and efficiency of new investments by sharing infrastructure projects and accessing international funding.
