Our very first steps are related to the first idea of water supply system in Podgorica, which was mentioned in ‘’Cetinjski vjesnik’’ in 1909. Three years later, the same paper published the news that Podgorica Municipal Board decided to allocate 320.000 perpers (Montenegrin currency at the time) for the construction of water supply system, but due to war conflicts which were soon to take place, the construction was delayed.

Development of water supply and wastewater system in our city proceeded with following chronology: 

After WWII, the first water supply project for the area of Podgorica was  drafted.  

The first research works on the water potential, on the territory of Podgorica were performed 

Decision was made to build a water intake structure on Mareza 

Capping structure with a pumping station was built on Mareza, and supply pipeline to Podgorica at a height of 6 km. 

Owing to mass participation of youth in work actions, water flowed in Podgorica through 15 public faucets. 

36 public faucets were installed on the territory of the City 

A water supply system was built in Tuzi with inhabitants’ contribution

Due to increasingly dynamic development of the city, the need for investments in the field of utility facilities grew, which is why a referendum was called in April this year to introduce self-contribution for the construction of hospitals, schools and sewers.  It was in this year that the construction of the sewerage system for a part of the town Preko Morače began.

A dual water supply system begins by drilling and equipping wells in Konik and Zagoric 

The development of town required greater water supply, so in this year a second well in Zagoric was put into operation, and soon after that, two more were built. 

The construction of the wastewater treatment system began

In September this year the wastewater treatment system started its trial operation

After very complex hydro-construction works, supported by the funds of the Municipality of Podgorica and Directorate for Public Works of Montenegro, at the capping and pumping station at Mareza II , the capacity of the water supply system of the city increased by additional 500 l/s 

Five wells with  capacity of 410 l/s were successively drilled in Ćemovsko polje  

Water supply systems were built in the areas of MIlješ, Piperi, Dinoša and Vuksanlekići, while the well on Bioče was equipped for the needs of the waterless areas in Kuči, ready to provide the water capacity necessary for 20 villages from Kuči. 

Successive contracting of works for the realization of the first phase of the wastewater treatment plant worth more than 50 million EUR.
