Water Supply Problem Will Be Solved in Villages Adjacent to Demarcation Line
1 February 2017
The first stage of construction/rehabilitation works of water supply system has been completed in 10 villages of Gori and Kaspi Municipalities, adjacent to demarcation line. As a result, water supply problem will be solved for more than 11 thousand local residents. Boreholes, chlorination buildings, and water towers have been constructed within the framework of the project. Minister of Regional Development and Infrastructure of Georgia, Zurab Alavidze, and Director of United Water Supply Company of Georgian, Giorgi Koberidze, have visited the works together. After the 2008 War, the outfall structure, whence the villages (Ditsi, Plavi, Plavismini, Pkhvenisi, Mereti, Kordi, Tsitelubani, Zemo Sobisi, Bozhami, Khviti) were being supplied by water, fell within the borders of occupied territory, which resulted in creating problems of water supply for local residents. The project was implemented through the funding of Government of Georgia and its total price amounted to more than 3 million GEL. Up to 50 local residents were employed at the works. Commencement of the second stage of water supply rehabilitation has been scheduled for spring, after the completion of which, the villages will be supplied by 24-hour quality water.
