YEREVAN, March 13. /ARKA/. Today 38% of subscribers have 24-hour supply in Armenia, as compared to 36% in 2012, says the annual report of Armenia Water and Sewerage Company (AWSC).
Water supply duration of 98% of subscribers is 4 hours and more (compared to 96% as of the end of 2012), technical director of the company Vardan Melkonyan said adding the company aims at achieving 100% for this indicator by 2015.
General director of the company Patrick Lorain told reporters 2013 was a successful year in terms of increased water supply hours, water quality and service standards.
Lorain also said some 560 rural communities have water supply problems as their water supply is not from a specialized company.
Deputy head of the State Water Committee Gagik Khachatryan, in his turn, said Armenian Water and Sewerage Company has made substantial progress over the last year.
The society is not fully satisfied with the quality of water supply services as water supply systems need extensive investments across the country, Khachatryan said.
The Armenian Water and Sewerage Company is managed by French Saur SA.. It operates in 37 cities and 268 rural communities in 10 regions of Armenia. ($ 1 - 410.94 drams). –0--
