Chisinau, Dec. 15 /MOLDPRES/- Parliament adopted today in the second reading the draft law on simplifying the procedure for setting up the association of water users for irrigation.
Under the document, the obligation for its statute to be approved by at least 50% plus one of the members was excluded. It was also provided that the General Assembly of the association will be able to decide with the vote of the members who own or use more than 50 percent of the land in the service area, to dissolve the association, if its objectives can no longer be met or its existence is no longer necessary.
The amendments aim to create irrigation water user associations at the sector level in the case of multi-sector irrigation systems. In the case of compactly located irrigation systems, it will be possible to establish associations that include several irrigation systems, provided that their activity will not negatively affect the functioning of the irrigation systems in general.
At the same time, the irrigation infrastructure, in private and public ownership will be able to be transferred for use to the water user associations for irrigation, based on the loan agreements.
The draft law was supported by the vote of 53 MPs.
