At a working meeting on June 8, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov instructed Deputy Prime Minister Annageldi Yazmyradov , who oversees the agricultural sector , to consider the possibility of starting the construction of desalination plants and supplying water to Ashgabat from the Caspian Sea.
On August 4, the newspaper "Neutral Turkmenistan" published an article on this topic, which says that this idea was worked out by specialists from the Türkmensuwylymtaslama Water Management Scientific-Production and Design Institute together with their Spanish counterparts - hydraulic constructors.
“The place of laying the route and branches to towns and cities was investigated, the number of related facilities, nodes at the intersection with other infrastructure facilities was determined, geodetic measurements were carried out. Based on the data obtained, a feasibility study was drawn up for the construction of a desalination plant , pumping stations in order to cover the growing needs for water in the Balkan region and the expanding capital, ”the newspaper writes.
Meanwhile, water is still cut off in Ashgabat. On August 4, from 7.00 to 14.00, there was no water in Parahat microdistricts, Gaudan residential area and in the 11th microdistrict.
As with previous shutdowns, residents were not warned about this. For what reason the water supply was subsequently interrupted was also not explained.
