07/02/2005 | First part of the Water Waste Channel Finished by Local Citizens

Because of unexpected problems, we could not finish the water-waste channel as we planned and the rest of work on the first part of channel had to be done by the local community. Local citizens also contributed financially to build the water-waste channel. The outcome was even better than was originally planned.
