Thus, the Romanian company will build aqueducts with the crossing of the Prut River for drinking water supply in Iasi County, Romania, in Nisporeni, Ungheni, Glodeni and Falesti districts of the Republic of Moldova, between the localities: Măcărești (Romania) - Măcărești (Moldova ), Sculeni (Romania) - Sculeni (Republic of Moldova), Ungheni (Romania) - Ungheni (Republic of Moldova) and in the sector of Tabăra (Romania).
The existing projects provide for four crossings (two underpasses and two overpasses) between the localities of Măcărești (Romania) - Măcărești (Republic of Moldova), Sculeni (Romania) - Sculeni (Republic of Moldova), Tabăra (Romania) - Viișoara (Republic of Moldova) and the crossing on the future bridge Ungheni (Romania) - Ungheni (Republic of Moldova). The start of the works at the Sculeni crossing, which will be connected to the Gherman - Falesti aqueduct, will make it possible to supply drinking water to 15 communes and the city of Falesti, with a total population of over 40,000 inhabitants.
The representatives of ApaVital company claim that, after the start of the project, at least 4 cities in the Republic of Moldova (Glodeni, Nisporeni, Ungheni and Falesti) and about 100 communes, with a population of around 250,000 people, will be able to be served with drinking water.
