HOW TO CONNECT TO WATER SUPPLYING AND SEWER NETWORK

To connect the existing facilities to city water-supplying and sewer network, consumers have to come to the Service Center of Technical Documentation department, PUC “Belgrade Waterworks and Sewerage”, at 27 Kneza Miloša Str. The procedure consists of several phases:

The first step is to ask for Conditions for facility internal installation designing that is obtained on the basis of the submitted documents: on location, facility and proprietary right. The validity period of the documents is six months from the issuing date.

The second step is to submit the application to receive Approval to Final design which is submitted at the Service Center desk. When the Decision on approval is obtained and graphical annexes in the design are certified, the third step is to submit the application for water supplying or sewer connection. The completed connection file (the green card) is sent to the respective plants of water supplying /sewer network areas, and the future consumer is connected to the network.

Bear in mind that the facility constructed without the building permit can be connected only temporary (until the building and use permits are obtained after the legalization process is completed) in the legalization process. The internal installations for water supplying and sewerage must be designed in accordance with the issued Conditions of PUC BWS on civil guide drawings of the Final as-built design of the facility.
