- The Cesme-Alacati Water Supply and Sewerage Project seeks to:

 i) bring about institutional development in the Union of municipalities;

ii) increase efficiency of delivering infrastructure services through the introduction of a private operation; and

iii) improve water quality, sewerage service, and environmental conditions.

- There are three components in this project. First, institutional development consists of strengthening the CALBIR (Cesme-Alacati Union) by setting up the Union's technical and financial management systems; hiring and monitoring the performance of a private operator for improved water and sewerage services; and providing technical assistance for a high level of project supervision and on environmental issues.

- Second, improving the operational condition of the water supply system will support hydrogeological investigations to increase water production of the wells in the Ildir area; relocation of wells in the Ildir area; construction of a water barrier; provision of operational equipment to improve water and wastewater services; and provision for urgent repairs and upgrading of the water supply system. Third, completion of sewerage system will develop and improve the sewerage network; construct a pre-treatment plant for the combined waste water flow from Cesme and Alacati to discharge into the sea.
