Podgorica – The well Bolje sestre (BETTER SISTERS) on Malo blato (SMALL MUD) in Skadar Lake is ideal for the project of the water supply of 6 Municipalities on the Montenegrin coast, but with the condition that those waters are not mixed with those from the River Moraca – it was pointed out yesterday by the members of the Scientific council of the Public enterprise “National Parks of Montenegro”.
Even though initially it was planned that the water for the Municipalities Ulcinj, Bar, Budva, Kotor, Tivat, and Herceg Novi is supplied form the well Karuc, the enterprise Regional water supply has asked the agreement for the change of the well.
– The Government has made a decision in July about the water supply of the coast from the Skadar Lake. The studies and the analysis have shown that the best solution for the long term water supply of the coast is the well Bolje sestre. The quality of the water is much better, because it is A1 all the time, the abundance is 2, 34 m3 per second. The route of the pipeline laid down at the bottom of the lake is shorter and is 4, 7 km, from the well to the pump station in Reljici, and for Karuc it is longer than 10 km said the director of that enterprise Zoran Bosnjak.
In order for the project to be realized, it is necessary to get the opinion of the “National Parks”, and the director of that enterprise Rade Gregovic said that that opinion “will probably be positive, because we are dealing with the area which is not endangering the flora and fauna of the lake”.
The president of the Scientific counsel PhD Branko Radojicic stated that, however, the decision has to be brought based on the precise information.
– In the study it was not taken into consideration that 1, 5 m from the well, on the lime rocks, there’s a village called Grbavci with 550 inhabitants. The influence of the septic tanks and the pesticides that the local people used should be examined – said Radojicic. PhD Mihailo Buric agrees that Bolje sestre are a better solution than Karuc, but with the condition that Moraca does not influence on the water from the well.
– If the water from Moraca mixes with the water from the well, that project should be dismissed – said Buric.
The director of the center for the eco toxicological researches Anja Misurovic, said that the researches show that “the entire well of Malo blato is very worthy, and that there are now hints that waters from Moraca penetrate deep under ground in it”.
By its composition the waters of Karuc and Bolje sestre are identical. In my opinion, the problem that we have is of another kind: when it was announced that Karuc will be the well, dozens of houses were built and we have registered the macro biotical pollution. The building should be banned – pointed out Misurovic.
