Many localities in the province of Francia receive drinking water on a schedule due to the drought but also the fact that, especially in rural areas, the drinking water is used for agricultural purposes, according to CUP Focşani Director, Gheorghe Vasilescu, according to Agerpres.
“The period was declared a drought in our area. Now with the agricultural business, many citizens use drinking water for agricultural purposes, so it is no longer enough for domestic consumption. Until now, in the autumn-winter period, the amount of water we provide was sufficient, this means that the system saves water for domestic consumption, but this does not mean that it can also provide water for irrigation or other agricultural work.days, intermittently, so that they can manage and provide some water supply and those who, if we provide as before, continuously, for the whole area, why They had absolutely no water for several days in for example, in Bordesti, between February and April, we pump about 145 to 165 cubic meters per day, and now there are more than 250 cubic meters but the amount of water is not enough. Excessive consumption in certain areas “Jorge Vasilescu said.
People use drinking water for agricultural purposes due to drought
According to CUP Director Focşani, in addition to the drought, the amount of water in the networks has also decreased due to illegal connections to the network.
“Surface water is not only a problem due to drought, but also groundwater, groundwater is declining and the volume of running water is declining. For citizens, to use water for domestic purposes and reduce its use for industrial or agricultural purposes, some use and pay for it, and some use methods Others to pull water from the network, through pirated and illegal connections. It is very difficult to detect, because the work is done through the ground, but we found such cases and we are still looking to find them. More and more innovative methods are used, but this is the work that We have to do it.”Vasilescu explained.
The communities most affected by the lack of drinking water are Homocea, Rugineşti, Coteşti, Tîmboeşti, Bordeşti or Obrejiţa.
Completing the expansion of drinking water networks, most of which are financed by European funds, can solve the drinking water problem for many consumers, but society also faces problems posed by the national economic situation.
“Since we took over the systems, we have seen what the problems are and we are trying to develop these systems through the POIM program with European funding. We are talking about a very large business, with a very large investment, about 200 million euros. A number of works have been completed, others are in progress, but we have Other problems.And the most difficult,they did not completely give up the business,but they do not have a fast pace of work anymore.Contract expired,the originator had a business guarantee contract for a bankrupt insurance company and support a good performance guarantee and from here we came to the termination of the contract,we are preparing to complete the verification of Business and its works Phase We will auction it with another contractor, we are looking for correct legal solutions Be quick to operate and complete the workVasilescu said.
CUP Focşani, the regional operator of water and wastewater services, operates drinking water supply networks in about half of the agglomerations and municipalities in Vrancea. However, there are also local areas in the province, such as Sihlea or Garoafa, which do not yet have a drinking water network.
