In the period of 2007-2011, only a little bit more than a quarter of all sewages (27,6%) in Jurbarkas district were treated according the existing requirements. Therefore in 2007 seeking to reduce the pollution of the river Nemunas and enhance living conditions of the local people, Jurbarkas District Municipality, together with partner  - Neman District Municipality, started preparation works of the project “Ecological improvement of the river Neman – construction of waste water collection and treatment infrastructure in Skirsnemunė town in Jurbarkas district (Lithuania) and in Neman city (Russia)”.

Skirsnemunė sewage and water treatment facilities, which are capable to process around 240 cubic meters of sewages a day, have been officially launched on 30 December 2014, when Lithuanian state authority commission approved its completeness.

According to specialists, unpleasant smells, which are usually related to sewage treatment facilities, will not bother people of this small town Skirsnemunė. There was an extension to the main building constructed, which is similar to the greenhouse. In this particular place, but not in the open area, aerotank and secondary settlers are installed. As they are covered, intense smells will not pass in to the environment.

The project is co-financed by the European Union and the Russian Federation under Lithuania-Poland-Russia ENPI CGross-border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013. The Programme’s contribution to the project is 8,140,000.00 euro.
