Seaside resort Golden Sands' new water purifying station will cost about EUR 10 M, Bulgaria's Deputy Regional Development Minister Dimcho Mihalevski has said. Mihalevski, who is currently in Varna, refuted rumours that the station would cost EUR 30 M. He also added that the Ministry would publish more information about an upcoming tender for a project for the station. The project should be completed in two and a half months.
The increasing number of hotels and tourists in the resort has presented the municipality of Varna with the problem of coping with much bigger water consumption. The current water purifying station is struggling to keep up with all the hotels, so the resort needs a new one.
