The two companies will make adjustments to Pastiersky Potok stream to provide anti-flood protection for Lietavská Lúčka, reconstruct the bed of the Oščadnica stream at Oščadnica and Bystrica stream in Nová Bystrica (all Žilina Region), the TASR newswire reported.

Construction work will also be carried out on the Kráľová waterworks (stretching through the Trnava and Nitra regions) to stabilise its protecting dam on the left side.

The Slovak Water Management Company originally estimated that the commission might cost €11.56 million (€13.88 million including VAT). The electronic tender for the commission co-financed from European funds featured ten bidders, with the decisive criterion being the lowest price, TASR wrote.

The competition was announced already in December 2013. The financing will be provided by the European Union via the Operational Programme Environment. The adjustment of Pastiersky Potok will last 12 months, the stabilisation of the Kráľová waterworks which is six kilometres long should last 15 months, the reconstruction of the Oščadnica stream 18 months, and the adjustment of the Bystrica stream 12 months, the SITA newswire wrote.
