For the first time ever about 5,500 residents of Tsnori village in Georgia’s Kakheti region will have access to a clean, 24-hour water supply thanks to a new project and financial contribution of the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Union (EU).

Georgia received an 11 million GEL (about $5 million/€5 million*) loan to rehabilitate Tsnori’s central water system.

In particular the rehabilitation works included building a new reservoir, pumphouse and chlorination stations.

The works were expected to be concluded by February 2017.

United Water Supply Company of Georgia announced more than 160 locals will be employed during the rehabilitation works.

Today there is no drinking water in Tsnori and residents access drinking water from the district's wells.
