Transportation of the potable water via the newly installed 2 high- productivity pumps with a capacity of 48000 m3/day was provided here. At the same time, "+220 Badamdar" reservoir with a capacity of 20,000 cubic meters was built in Badamdar settlement and "190 Badamdar” reservoir with a capacity of 4,500 cubic meters was reconstructed. Hydrophore pumps were also installed at the “220 Badamdar” reservoir to provide drinking water the subscribers who live in high- relief areas of Badamdar settlement.

A 10 km long (1,000 mm diameter) transmission main of steel pipes was built to link the “+152 Alatava” reservoir with the “+220 Badamdar” and “+190 Badamdar” reservoirs.
