How to survive in Georgia without water. 27758.jpeg

The fact that the villagers of Kavtiskhevi, Kaspi District of Georgia, regularly suffer from lack of water, is no secret. Despite numerous requests, the problem is not solved yet. Residents of one of the parts of this village, Tvaladi, are particularly affected. There is no drinking water or irrigation water.


Picturesque landscapes of Tvaladi are pleasing to the eye. The name of this part of the village of Kavtiskhevi translated from Georgian as "beautiful". Indeed, there is nothing better than healthy air that you breathe in this beautiful place. But the life of local villagers is marred by problems with the water. The locals have addressed to numerous agencies for solutions to this problem, but unfortunately, it was in vain.

"I am Tbilisi resident; I travel to Tvaladi only in the summer. I'm struggling for years to get water supply at my plot. I've addressed to all authorities, ministries and departments - all in vain", Eter Chkhikvadze says.

"Two years ago they laid water at the middle land plot, but there are only swimming leeches and some worms. You better do not to drink this water", a local resident Tamara Kotorashvili complains.

The problem of water for irrigation is also not resolved. Farmers can only work the land adjacent to the house. Other areas are being used only for haymaking. On the slope, where they earlier sown wheat, weeds are now growing. Canals, dug earlier, have disappeared. "We do not know who has destroyed the canals. We appealed to the police, but no one responded", a local resident says.

Farmers are seeking out in the valley the rivulets and try to bring narrow canals to their houses. So they get the water and can work the land plots.

"Look up there, a river flows. We bring rivulets from there. Look at my cornel garden. My husband and I have dug along the canal, but after the rain we have to dig it again. We get no help fromthe Government, they would not give a glass of water to drink", old woman Makvala tells us. In addition to the garden cornel, she has a garden with herbs and vegetables. That's what a hardworking person can do.

The little boy Tornike who walks through the village with a little donkey named Fotola, said proudly: "I have personally laid the trickle from slides".
