Owners

Owners of the water-related infrastructure:  

The owners of the water-related infrastructure are legal entities established prevailingly as voluntary unions of municipalities according to Act No. 128/2000 Sb., on Municipalities. Their mission is to follow the Municipality Act in the field of supplying inhabitants with drinking water and collecting and treating wastewater in accordance with Section 50 (1) (b) of the aforementioned Act. Therefore, they provide for the construction and reconstruction of extensive water infrastructure assets (wastewater treatment plants - WWTPs, water treatment plants - WTPs,  water supply and sewage systems), they own.  As owners, the unions are also responsible for the maintenance, repairs, and emergency repairs as, according to Act No. 274/2001 Sb., on the Operation of Public Water Supply and Sewage Systems, they are obligated to ensure a continuous and safe operation of water supply and sewage systems. To cover these specialised operations, they engage our operating company on the basis of long-term lease and operation agreements.

The unions of municipalities, whose water infrastructure we operate, obtained water-related assets in 1993 and, at the same time, the shares in the company from the National Property Fund of the CR. Most of these unions established Svaz VKMO s.r.o. in 1999, where they invested the shares in VODÁRENSKÁ AKCIOVÁ SPOLEČNOST, a.s. as the registered capital.
