Chisinau, 7 February /MOLDPRES/ - The ecological state of the water resources from Moldova’s southern region, their protection and conservation were subjects discussed at a 6 February regional conference held in the southern Cimislia town.
The conference was organized by the Ecological Movement of Moldova, with the support of the Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment Ministry, Moldova’s Waters Agency, South Regional Development Agency (ADR Sud), territorial ecological inspectorates, committees of the regional hydrographical sub-basins, environmental non-governmental organizations, local authorities from those eight districts from southern Moldova.
The participants considered more possibilities of optimizing the decision-making processes dealing with the use, protection and conservation of water resources locally and regionally.
According to the head of the Ecological Movement of Moldova, Alecu Renita, at present, a bad ecological state of the water resources is recorded in Moldova. Renita noted that this imposed the taking of concrete measures to ensure ecological security and citizens’ supply with qualitative water. “A solution would be the enforcement of the legislative framework which regulates the management of water resources and encourages the use of the committee of hydrographic basin and sub-basin as instruments of joint management of the water basins and rivers,” Renita said.
“Our goal is not only to provide with water as many as possible residents from the settlements of southern Moldova, but also to supply them with quality, clean water, as the provision with qualitative water is one of the criteria of good living standards,” the director of ADR Sud, Maria Culesov, said. In the context, the official referred to projects on supply with water and sewerage, implemented in the South Development Region from the National Regional Development Fund and with the support of development partners, among which the construction of the main aqueduct Leova-Iargara. It is to bring benefits to more than 20,000 residents from southern Moldova, providing them access to modern services of supply with water and sewerage.
