A public-private partnership to improve local water supply in Armenia.

Clean Water Partnership, Armenia

In 2014, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), VivaCell-MTS Telecommunications Company, and the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC) launch a water supply projects that will improve access to drinking water in four Armenian communities– Berkaber in Tavush province, and Haykavan, Arazap and Lukashin in Armavir province.

Water supply, pressure, efficiency, and safety are severe issues in each of the four communities. Access to drinking water in homes is either very limited (2-3 hours a day) or non-existent, which requires residents to retrieve water by bucket from a nearby source. Water and energy loss is also rampant due to inefficiency, dated infrastructure, and lack of metering systems.

The project aims to address these issues by laying new piping, installing pumping and reservoir stations where needed, and adding water metering systems to the water networks to increase efficiency and generate revenue for the communities. Approximately 6,800 people from the four villages will benefit from these projects, which will be implemented by the USAID Clean Energy and Water Program in cooperation with FPWC.
