Artsvabert Water Pipe & Reservoir Renovation
Արծվաբերդ (Artsvabert) is a town in the Տավուշ (Tavush) province of Armenia, which shares a 34km long border with Azerbaijan. Artsvaberd is located in a particularly remote and isolated part of Tavush. Artsvabert has a population of almost 2,600 people living in 500 homes. Most of these homes only receive water once every three days for one hour. The lack of enough clean water has resulted in the absence of basic household conveniences, thus making life in Artsvabert difficult for its population. The implementation of the Artsvabert Water Pipe & Reservoir Renovation program will provide daily water to the majority of the households in Artsvabert.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

Work on the reservoir in the town of Artsvabert began this week. The concrete panels covering the reservoir were removed and the water pipers were diverted until the relining can be completed.
Repairs to the reservoir have been completed and the results are fabulous! The reservoir now has an abundance of water.
Our team determined that an additional, unforeseen repair should be made to the main pumping station for the village. Our specialist from Yerevan installed an automatic float for the reservoir and automated the filling system to ensure a steady flow of water for the village.
