The Government water policy is focused on the maximum utilization of other non-conventional water resources, such as the recycled water, which can replace equal quantities of potable water.


The recycled water, which is produced from the domestic wastewater treatment,is used for irrigation of existing agricultural cultivations and for re-charge of underground aquifers.


The Waste Water and Reuse Division handles these matters. The responsibilities and accountabilities of the Division are described below:

A. Implementation of the Council Directive 91/271/EEC for the Urban Waste Water Treatment, as far as the preparation and implementation of the National Implementation Program of the Directive which includes planning, preparation of studies, promoting, managing and supervising the construction of sewerage systems and monitoring the operation and maintenance in the rural communities and municipalities, with population equivalent greater than 2.000. Furthermore, it involves coordination with the Urban Sewerage Boards for their contribution in the implementation of the Directive in the major towns and touristic resorts and preparation of status and progress reports for submission to the European Commission, as well as for public awareness.

B. Implementation of the Sewerage Systems Laws 1971-2010 concerning the preparation of studies, promotion of construction and monitoring of the operation and maintenance of the sewerage systems in small rural communities with population equivalent smaller than 2,000, as well as in military camps.

C. Monitoring of Operation and Maintenance of Wastewater Treatment Plants

D. Management of Vathia Gonia Wastewater Treatment Plant for Domestic and Industrial wastewater.

E. Handling of sanitary engineering specialized matters concerning public health and the protection of the environment.

F. Contract Aggrements of Upgrading Sewage Treatment Plants

G. Project for Constructing the Treatment Plant for Domestic Septage, Industrial Wastewater, surplus sludge and leachate at Vati.
