In 2019 Romania’s water distribution network had a length of nearly 85.000 km, and more than 750.000 million m3 was distributed through the system. Approximately 70% of the total population of nearly 20 million people were connected to a public water supply system. In cities, 99% of inhabitants were connected to this system, whereas in rural areas only 35% had access to the drinkable water network.

The waste water network sums up 38.449 km in length, out of which 25.500 km are in cities and towns.

Only 54 % of the population is connected at public waste water systems, meaning over 10 million inhabitants.

There are major EU investment projects regarding the water and waste water sectors in Romania. Altogether there are 23 projects approved for this sector with a value of 4.2 billion €. In addition, a total sum of 2.4 billion € is available between 2021-2027 for water projects. Thereby, the transformation of the Romanian water and waste water sector poses is an interesting new market opportunity for Danish companies.
