 Subject:  Improving sanitation in the Viveiro estuary (Lugo, Galicia)
 Answer in writing 

On 22 July 2016, the Directorate-General for European Projects and Funds of the Government of Galicia received a request from the ‘Augas de Galícia’ public corporation concerning the authorisation of the operation ‘Improvement of the sanitation and waste water treatment systems in the Viveiro estuary’. This proposal provides for actions to sanitise Celeiro and improve the waste water treatment plant (WWTP), which are required to meet the objectives of the Water Framework Directive and of Directive 91/271/EEC concerning urban waste-water treatment.

This investment is one of the priority actions of the 2014-2020 ERDF Galicia operational programme, whose objective is to improve water quality and optimise the existing treatment system in order to improve the classification in the harvesting areas in an estuary very rich in seafood. The works were scheduled to take place from 1 December 2016 to 31 December 2020.

In September 2016, an agreement was formally signed between ‘Augas de Galícia’ and the Viveiro municipality with the aim of laying down the basic conditions for carrying out works to improve the sanitation and the WWTP and for its entry into service, operation, conservation and maintenance.

What progress has been made on the project ‘Sanitation of Celeiro and improvement of the Viveiro WWTP’, co-financed by the EU through the ERDF under the 2014-2020 ERDF Galicia operational programme?
