Civil initiatives are very important to us since they give us necessary impulse to act in certain direction. This investments aren’t big but they are meaningful to our fellow citizens.”

Invested finances aren’t big and we perform similar works in other municipalities, as well. Similar reconstructions have been done in Voždovac, Rakvica and Novi Beograd. PUC Belgrade Waterworks and Sewerage is the service of all citizens of Belgrade, and since warm weather periods are approaching, our fellow citizens will most surely welcome such initiatives.
