Construction of HPPs in highlands - NGOs talk about violations

Construction of HPPs in mountainous regions is underway. Representatives of NGOs talk about it. According to them, construction of HPPs also damages the environment and threatens the lives of the locals.

The NGOs say that the construction of the hydro station in the village of Chuberi is dangerous as the part of the unit will be outside the control of the Georgian government.

"Projects are presented with violations of norms and standards. In fact, environmental impact analysis is not done, geological, geophysical, seismological surveys are not made and no risks are counted, "- said Manana Jebashvili, the chairman of the Association of Parliament members of Georgia.
