Construction of water supply infrastructure in Radeni village

On 31 May 2008, the town of Bielsk Podlaski and the Calarasi region signed a partnership agreement. Their cooperation encompasses trade and services, education, improvement of public health, culture, ecology and environmental protection.

The village of Radeni in the Calarasi region is inhabited by about 2,200 residents. Of these, 10 local entrepreneurs are engaged in fruit drying, oil production, and wood treatment, and 21 households earn their principal income from greenhouses. Water is drawn from a deep well and runs through water mains to 140 households. Until now, about 150 wells have been used by 575 households. There is no running water in such institutions in the village as the kindergarten, school, outpatient clinic, post office, library and daytime centre with a room used for meetings and celebrations.

The existing situation forces people to use inefficient and shallow local wells or to transport water in containers from the lake. The water in the existing wells does not satisfy daily demand. Nor does it meet sanitary standards. Analyses have shown that the technologically simplest and economically most efficient manner to ensure access to water for Radeni residents is to dig a deep well and connect it to the water main system.

Agriculture, crop cultivation and enterprises in Radeni need to be supplied with water in order to operate and develop. The project plans include a deep well and water pumping station with installations and a power supply network, two water reservoirs and a water supply system.

The actions planned in the project will ensure regular access to good quality water for the upper part of the Radeni village, which will improve the living conditions and social and economic growth of the entire locality. Thanks to the project, 575 households have access to water. The project also benefited seven institutions (the school, kindergarten, post office, library, town hall, medical clinic, and daytime centre) and 10 agri-food enterprises which have been connected to the new water supply system.
