VANADZOR TO HAVE ROUND THE CLOCK WATER SUPPLY IN 2 YEARS
VANADZOR, JULY 22, ARMENPRESS: Authorities in Armenia’s
third-largest town of Vanadzor say its residents will have round the
clock drinking water supplies in two years. The project to improve
water supplies is supported by a loan from German KfW bank. Henrik
Kochinian, the governor of Lori province, of which Vanadzor is the
capital, said the Bank has released 11 million euros credit for a
major restoration of water pipeline bringing water to the city.
Together with Vanadzor also residents of 12 rural communities will
have 24-hour water supplies.
Kochinian said local water pipelines have not been repaired for 35
years, except the network of Spitak that once received 150 million
from the state budget to restore it. He said the restoration of
networks in Alaverdi and Stepanavan will require from $3.5 million to
4$ million investments. These two cities are included in a World Bank
