The management plan was presented to the participants, later they will receive by e-mail the presentation of the plan and will send in return 3 priorities identified specific to their locality.

Water quantity issues raised by participants

Most participants highlighted the lack of water. One of the discussed problems is the water and the ponds that catch water that do not allow farmers to use water for irrigation, because after gathering the fish, the water is discharged. Some of the mayors came up with the idea of drafting a regulation for the lease of ponds. This regulation would regulate the relationship between the owner and the lessor, it would include conditions of water use.

Other participants came with the experience of winning projects in the field and recommended the creation of local NGOs to attract funds.

The need to invest in waste water treatment plants and modernisation of sewerage system

The participants also listed the problem of wastewater discharge, dumping waste in river waters, lack of water due to drought and among its solutions they see the construction of treatment plants, construction and modernization of sewerage systems, implementation of legislation and thorough verification by the Environmental Protection Inspectorate of sources of river pollution.
