A working trip of President Emomali Rahmon to the northern province of Sughd is going on.

According to the Tajik president’s official website, Rahmon yesterday attended an official opening ceremony of the first stage of the Dehmoi water supply line.  This line provides more than 15,000 resident of the city of Khujand with safe drinking water.

The first stage includes rehabilitation of station No 4 of Khujand Water Company (Khujandvodokanal).

The second stage includes construction of two large water reservoirs and installation of pipes.

The third and fourth stages include laying an 18-kilometer water supply line from Dehmoi to Khujand.
