Georgia, Tbilisi, Dec. 27th / Trend, N. Kirtzkhalia /
Green Alternative environmental organization urges the suspension of construction and exploiting a hydroelectric power station on the Brolistskali River in the Georgian Kazbegi region.
"Kazbegi HPP" plans to build a hydropower station with a capacity of six megawatts on the Brolistskali River in Kazbegi region. The projected area is located a few hundred meters from the checkpoint at Lars on the Georgian-Russian border.
Green Alternative, a non-governmental organization and the government in Stepantsminda believe that the report on the environmental impact assessment, submitted for the public discussion, is of low-quality and does not show the possible impact of the project on the environment, as required by the Georgian legislation.
They advise the company to rehabilitate the "Kazbegi HPP" owned by the company with a capacity of 1.5 megawatts, and equip it with modern facilities.
