Aknaghbyur is a community in Askeran region with population of 334. The community water supply system was constructed in 2002 within the frames of Government Support Program. The community gets potable water access from an open spring in the upper part of the village.


Water did not go through cleaning and purification processes. Moreover, it was freezing in the intakes during winter and the quantity reaching the village was decreasing. On the other hand it was getting muddied during spring flowing and was undrinkable. There are three daily regulation reservoirs, one with 50 m³ of volume that is connected to 19 households, one with 60m³ connected to 42 households and the third one with 180 m³ connected to 90 households. The water distribution network was constructed with polyethylene pipes and distribution wells. It was in decent condition. There were no water meters on the distribution network.


Within this project the following rehabilitation works have been carried out:
• Renovation of the lower spring
• Construction of a pumping station and installation of new pumps
• Construction of а substation
• Construction of pressure pipeline
• Installation of water meters on the distribution network
