Overall and specific goals of the project 1. The strategic goal of the program: "To increase the level of economic and social integration in the cross-border area". 2. Objectives of program priorities Priorities 2 2.1 Joint activities to support the protection of natural environment 2.1.1 Water system The project aims to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants in the partner municipalities and in the partner communities by building sewer system and sewage tank. This will improve the quality of the water of stream Blh and in the cross-border river Slaná, into which the cleaned waste water will flow from all the partner municipalities. The flood protection will be also improved in this area, because there will be no pollution and blockage of drainage ditches and gutters. Achievements: The Municipality of Bátka and the municipality of Domaháza are situated in the cross-border area in the region of Banská Bystrica and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén counties. Employment in the villages still remains in the agricultural and tertiary sectors. Among the weaknesses of the villages are the underdeveloped infrastructure and the low living standard of the population, high unemployment, an increasing level of migration of the population and the risk of floods. The project solved the undesirable situation within the area in this regard, and the protection of surface and underground water and watercourses was ensured. The building of waste water treatment tanks and sewer systems within the villages resulted in the creation of new jobs.
