Hayredin mayor: Single state body monitoring dams would secure people’s safety

Sofia. A single state body to monitor the dams would better secure people’s safety, Hayredin Mayor Todor Aleksiev told FOCUS Radio this morning, commenting on the government’s idea to create a company for dams. He said that the municipalities do not have enough experts and money to manage their dams. If the facilities are transferred to the state, this would improve coordination and prevent abuses with funds disbursed for dam maintenance, according to Aleksiev. He thinks that even if the municipalities get additional funds for the dams, some might use the money for other purposes. Commenting on the current situation in Hayredin, he said that the water level in the Rogozen 1 dam is decreasing, but there is still risk until the water returns to normal levels. The dams in the municipality have been close to emergency for years, and the money for repair and maintenance is too little, the mayor added.

With the consent of the municipalities, the dams will be transferred to the new company, which will take care of the repairs and maintenance, the minister said, quoted by FOCUS News Agency. The government is also planning to set up a fund that will receive some money from the commercial exploitation of all dams. The new company will be funded from the state budget and from the new fund.
Legal amendments for dam categorisation and related requirements for operation were proposed today. The owners and operators of dams will be obliged to prepare emergency plans, the minister said.
