Minister: Water situation remains a concern

ArmInfo. Despite the excess of fundraising for used irrigation water, the situation in this area remains a concern. This was announced by the Minister of Territorial  Administration and Infrastructure of the Republic of Armenia Suren  Papikyan on the eve of a meeting with the participation of heads of  water-users  companies.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Territorial  Administration and Infrastructure of the Republic of Armenia, the  minister emphasized that in 2019 compared to the previous year, 578  million drams more funds were raised, 1.7 billion drams were saved on  electricity. Nevertheless, the minister expressed concern with the  level of actual fees, emphasizing the importance of eliminating years  of practice when the government is forced to pay off the debt of  water companies every year due to inefficient work.  He pointed out  the need to change visions to address organizational issues, increase  self-sufficiency and effective management of water resources.

The heads of water user companies informed the Minister about the  difficulties with the organization of work and seasonal problems.

At the end of the meeting, the Minister gave a number of instructions  and recommendations to the meeting participants on improving the  situation and indicators.

Earlier, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan noted that the sphere of  water use is one of the most corrupt in the country. "We will check  the water user companies, see who stole how much, and then don't say  that they filled the prisons. What a habit it is to sit still, steal,  rob, and then demand money from the government.  Why should the  government pay?" - asked Pashinyan. He recalled the situation with  irrigation water. In 2018, the government allocated 10 billion for  subvention projects, but only 1.6 billion was spent, as the  communities were unable to present programs, explaining this by a  lack of resources, specialists, or other factors. Pashinyan promised  to check "one by one, who drives which cars."
