LEVEL OF POTABLE WATER POLLUTION IN AKHALKALAK BECOMES DANGEROUS

AKHALKALAK, August 4 (Noyan Tapan). In consequence of rains in the
town of Akhalkalak the level of potable water pollution reaches the
point when its use without boiling becomes dangerous. Romik Avagian,
the chief sanitary doctor of the Akhalkalak region, expressed such
opinion. Akhalkalak receives potable water from the location of Ablar
situated 10-12 km far from the town. The reason of water pollution is
the fact that the hollows in the location of Ablar are filled with
rainwater and this rainwater is mixed with the water flowing to the
town by the waterpipe. The public organizations of the region
mentioned at the "round table" that it's necessary to undertake urgent
measures, otherwise serious consequences are possible. The A-Info
agency mentioned that the springs in Ablar are the only ones in
Javakhk which are to a certain extent controlled by the state, water
is examined in the laboratory and if necessary population is informed
about water pollution. And the other springs of Javakhk (Bezhano,
Dilif, Ekhtila) providing villages with water almost aren't
controlled.
