Introduction of the Automated Online Centralized Management System in the Ararat Valley is Underway

The pilot project is implemented in partnership with Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling company as part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed on July 20, 2016. Twenty groundwater abstraction points at the fisheries of Ararat Valley will be equipped with the flow meters and data loggers to transmit the data to the remote server installed in the Ministry of Nature Protection. The data will be updated every five minutes and stored on the server for up to five years.

At the pilot stage, the system covers four large fisheries of the Ararat Valley – Alex Grig, Inter Aqua, Max Fish, and Unifish companies with limited liability. After the successful launch of the system, the Government plans to extend the network onto other fisheries of the Ararat Valley.

The installation of the automatic monitoring system will ultimately help to enhance the monitoring of the groundwater use in the Ararat Valley and control over the compliance with approved water use permits. Moreover, availability of a reliable data system and analytical tools will provide the basis for more informed decision-making on water resources in the Ararat Valley.

 

Irrigation Improvement Project in Sayat-Nova Village

Construction of the pumping station is underway for the irrigation improvement project in Sayat-Nova village. The main building is nearly completed and the sub-contractor supplied the pumps ready for installation. The pumping station is built at Masis-Dzuk fish-farm, the owner of which endorsed the idea of channeling the fish farm outlet water to the farmlands of Sayat-Nova community. The newly built network will allow irrigating 60 ha of land at the moment, with further potential for expansion. More information on the project and partners here.
