Renewal in the field of water resources was discussed at the meeting by the Head of the Rivne Regional State Administration Vitaliy Koval with the head of the regional office of water resources in the Rivne region Igor Mosiychuk and the head of the Northern inter-district water management department Viktor Melnikovych.

«During the meeting, we worked out the following steps for further work, in particular: conducting an inventory of all reclamation systems and mapping water resources, through grant projects to attract investment funds to restore water infrastructure in Polissya districts, involvement in cleaning water channels of agricultural enterprises that use land plots for agricultural production, as well as the mobilization of local budgets for the allocation of funds for reclamation activities,» - said Vitalii Koval.

The head of the regional state administration also reminded that there are already positive examples of cooperation between business and government in the region. After all, even earlier, representatives of the water industry together with entrepreneurs and local authorities cleaned and restored water drainage in the village of Komory, Zarichne district. Thanks to this initiative, it was possible to regulate groundwater. This ensured soil fertility and, as a consequence, increased yields.

It will be recalled that there are almost 400,000 reclamation lands and 18,000 kilometers of water canals in the Rivne region.
