The construction of a small hydro power plant near Getahovit village
of Tavush region has caused protest of local residents. The main
reason is activation of the landslide processes, erosion of land and
the irrigation water problems.

As Getahovit village resident Artur Avakyan said at today’s
press-conference, that because of functioning of the “Khachakhpyur”
power plant since 2007, the nearby territories have found themselves
in the landslide. Despite obvious ecological risks and the protest of
local residents, the power plant “Khachaghpyur-2” power plant
construction has kicked off. Avakyan said that this sector was
involved in the special nature protection area, which consists of 3
waterfalls.

To protect their interests, local residents are ready to apply to the
government and the president with a demand to draw attention to the
created situation.

As Hetq.am reported earlier, Ararat Kokobelyan, brother of the leader
of the Free Democrats party, Khachatur Kokobelyan, is behind the hydro
power plant “Khachakhbyur-2”.
