Czech Republic Water Report

BMI View: In recent years, the Czech Republic has seen many improvements and developments in its water sector, especially with regard to efficiency and wastewater treatment. As the population begins to grow more rapidly, these improvements will show their worth. As consumption and extraction increase, the efficient and modern infrastructure will ensure minimal losses and excellent wastewater treatment.

The Czech Republic has a modern, extensive and relatively efficient water sector. The country's recent history has seen many developments in the industry, largely due to the high standards required for entry into the EU. Despite these improvements there is still work to be done and modernisation is ongoing, especially with regards to the infrastructure and wastewater facilities. As these changes take shape and the sector begins to see the benefits in its efficiency and reduced leakage, we forecast that the amount of water wasted by the sector will decrease while consumption levels increase.

Utilising funding provided by the EU and focussing its efforts on important areas, the Czech Republic has seen significant improvements in its water sector. This is particularly true of its wastewater treatment and sewage network, highlighted by a steady growth of the amount of treated wastewater. The water sector is well managed and has strong but effective regulations. Although EU funding may be reduced slightly over the coming years, the sector's shrewd use of that funding and the continuing demand for mains access will see many new developments and upgrades.

The investment environment around the Czech water sector remains favourable. With developments to the infrastructure ongoing, openness to foreign investment and strong legislation in place, opportunities are commonplace. Although currently there is a strong demand, especially from those in more rural areas, for greater access to mains water, as projects are completed and appropriate standards met, this demand may...
