The construction of the wastewater treatment plant will cover 51,000 residents. In order to preserve nature, the Kolubara river and the Velika Bara canal, the following will be constructed: WWTP 1 Obrenovac PE-50,000 and WWTP 2 Ratari PE-1,000. The total length of the sewage network that will be constructed is 98,389.73 meters. The construction of the sewage network will cover the following settlements, villages and parts of the municipality of Obrenovac: Ratari – 14,331.00 m, Zvečka – 32,791.84 m, Barič and Mislođin – 38,410.00 m and Urovci – 12,856.89 m.

The implementation of the”Clean Serbia” Project in the Municipality of Obrenovac began on October 25, 2021.

The Project includes the construction of a sewage network for the residents of Mladost, Zvečka, Barič, Mislođin, Ratar and Veliko Polje, as well as the construction of a wastewater treatment plant.

“Currently, the state of our rivers is such that since the 1963, we have been completely pouring all the feces directly into the water. We are in a place that there are several thousand cesspools in these settlements that will become a thing of the past with this Project. With this Project, we will have the opportunity for a normal and pleasant life in Obrenovac. What makes us most happy is that at this moment we will be able to improve those 99 kilometers on both sides of Kolubara, and by that I mean Baric, Mislodjin, Zvečka, Krtinska and Urovci, and along with the settlement of Ratari, in such a way that the complete infrastructure will become a symbol of the 21st century and which are present in the central Belgrade municipalities will also now be in our Obrenovac”, described the current situation in Obrenovac, Mayor Mioslav Cuckovic.

The value of the investment is 54 million EUR. And it is anticipated that the streets in which the sewage network will be constructed will be widened by two meters.

In the course of the Project implementation so far, 3,046 m of sewage network has been constructed.
