The rural areas in Bulgaria and Eastern Europe with population less than 2000 inhabitants face the problem of not having regulation about an adequate management of their wastewater. Since March 2005 in two villages in the region of Central South Bulgaria - Stara Zagora Spa and Sulitsa runs a project on sustainable water and waste management. The villages belong to the upper Tracian Valley in the Central part of Bulgaria. It is located along the Banska river in the southern foothills of Sarnena Gora, 451m above sea level.
Ecological sanitation is an affordable, feasible and appropriate option for small rural agglomerations, in particular for villages with a lack of adequate wastewater treatment systems.
