 Summary:
 Water tightness defines the resistance of concrete structures to the penetration of water under specific pressure. Since hydrotehnical structures are mainly made of reinforced concrete and are used for water retention, these facilities must be watertight, so special attention is paid to the concrete mix design, including admixtures. Thus, satisfying this criteria was unavoidable during the design and construction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Bihać, as a part of the Project for Collection and Treatment of Waste Water. Consequently, testing of water resistance of concrete was conducted according to EN 12390-8:2010, and goal of this paper is to present this experience through data processing and test results.
