Slovenian Environment Agency at the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment issued an Environmental Approval for HPP Brežice 35402-4/2013-48 on 7 February 2014. The approval was granted for the construction of a dam structure with a reservoir, flood barriers for protection of settlements, drainage channels, the Močnik stream regulation and fertile soil management.
A complaint may be filed within 15 days, however the HESS company has forfeited this possibility.
A request for a building permit will be submitted on 17 February 2914, depending on finalizing current activities. Given the deadlines, we expect to receive the building permit for HPP Brežice in March 2014.
