OFFICIAL VISIT OF SLATINO DAM ON 18.07.2019

On 18.07.2019, the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Economy, Traian Dimkovski, together with the EU Ambassador Samuel Zbogar, and the UNDP Resident Representative in the Republic of Northern Macedonia, Narine Sahakyan, visited the Slatino Dam.

Construction Institute Makedonija AD Skopje as a contractor is reconstructing the Slatino Dam within the framework of the European Union Program for 2015 Damage Restoration.

New technologies and materials are used in the reconstruction. Minister Dimkovski said that the reconstruction achieved structural stability of the dam, resistance to flood water, which reduced the risk of floods. On the other hand, dam repair will allow timely availability of water for irrigation of agricultural land. In addition, the total project value is over € 1.1 million.

As pointed out by Ambassador Zbogar, the repair of the Slatino Dam is part of the "EU for You" campaign, which aims to raise awareness and inform the public about the EU's assistance to the country.
