The problem of irrigating the orchards in Ohanavan and Karbi Villages was discussed at the consultation with Deputy PM, Territorial Administration Minister Armen Gevorgyan on 3 March, as Information and Public Relations Department of Territorial Administration Ministry informs. Reminder: “Gaha Energy” company intends to construct a SHPP on Arzni-Shamiram subsidy canal in the region, which caused the concerns of Ohanavan and Karbi villagers. The canal ensures the irrigation of the communities. The villagers are convinced that they won’t be able to irrigate their apple orchards after the construction of the SHPP, so they oppose to the construction of the SHPP. Upon Deputy PM’s proposal a working group will be established, which will include the representatives of “Qasakh” WUC serving the orchards, water intake company, Ohanavan and Karbi communities and the company implementing energetic project to discuss the project and to supervise its implementation process.
