Kapan drinking water polluted
Kapan Center of the State Hygiene and Anti-Epidemic Inspectorate of Armenian Health Ministry has issued a warning to Kapan residents about drinking water pollution, Zhoghovurd reports.
The Inspectorate claims that water pollution was caused by heavy precipitation. However, the paper says that geological prospecting conducted by Bamo Metal Company could cause water pollution in Kapan. The company denies the claims, however, it stopped its activities for some days following rumours that it is to blame for water pollution, the paper writes.
“One of the key achievements of the project implemented with UNDP/GEF support is the inclusion and support of extra-curricular environmental education as a strategic approach. This was a direct result of the series of roundtables jointly organized with EEN members and policymakers,” adds Sahakyan.
