The first system of water wells has already been commissioned. The water consumption of the system of water wells, which ensures round-the-clock water supply, is 27 liters per second. This means supplying drinking water to 214 families, irrigation water to 75 families, and 90 hectares of arable land.
The four-year project is aimed at safe and sustainable water supply to over 8,000 families through the restoration of 40 systems of water wells. The goal of the project is to ensure water supply in the Azerbaijani agricultural communities without using electricity.
