The Implementation of Ambitious Targets Drop by Drop: Evaluation of Impact of Environmental Investments on Water Quality

Oto Potluka, Jan Brůha, Lenka Slavíková



Water pollution not only affects leisure activities, but also the cost of production of drinking water quality and the overall quality of aquatic ecosystems. The Czech Republic has pledged to meet European policy on treatment of wastewater from settlements and ensure a certain quality of all water bodies in the next decade (see Water Framework Directive no. 2000/60 / EC). Therefore, the Operational Programme Environment devotes its first priority axis to improving water infrastructure, particularly the construction and reconstruction of wastewater treatment plants and sewerage systems.

The research presented here focuses on whether there has been real improvement in water quality due to investments in the construction of wastewater treatment plants. The analysis is performed on data from the monitoring system of the Operational Programme Environment 2007–2013 and data on phosphorus pollution and phosphorus phosphate measured by the Vltava River, Inc. for the years 2007–2014.

Statistical tests estimate the impact of environmental investments confirms that spending on construction, renovation and expansion of sewage treatment plants in the Vltava River basin have a positive effect on water quality.
