-- The objectives of the Antalya Water Supply and Sanitation Project are to:

a) meet at least cost the demand for water supply, sewerage and stormwater drainage;

b) develop new institutional arrangements for management of municipal water supply, sewerage and stormwater drainage, and to introduce private sector participation in the operation of the services;

c) implement appropriate cost recovery policies;

d) postpone the need to develop costly new water resources by improving the efficiency of utilization of existing sources and of water usage by reducing the volume of non-revenue water which is presently too high;

e) improve and sustain environmental conditions and reduce health hazards that threaten the local population and the tourism industry.
