The Glavgosexpertiza of Russia issued a positive conclusion following the re-consideration of the next design and estimate documentation for the reconstruction of the complex of structures of the Mezhdurechye Kuban-Yegorlyk pumping station in the Izobilnensky District of the Stavropol Territory.
The pumping station on the Novotroitskoye reservoir supplies water to users through the Novoaleksandrovsky main canal. The section of the station's external water conduit planned for reconstruction has been in operation since 1975. The implementation of the project will improve the quality of water supply to the population and increase the area of irrigated agricultural land by 8,8 thousand hectares.
The work under the project provides for the partial replacement of sections of the water conduit over 1 km long. Observation cameras will be built at road and rail crossings, and a flow meter camera at the station itself. In addition, the equipment will be updated, the station building will be reconstructed. After the replacement of pumping equipment, the productivity of the irrigation system will increase.
Reconstruction, technical re-equipment and construction of new reclamation systems on the territory of the region are carried out within the framework of the state program for the development of agriculture, as well as the departmental program “Development of the reclamation complex of Russia”. Over the past five years, the agrarians of the region, on behalf of the Governor, have commissioned 21 thousand hectares of new irrigation worth 4 billion rubles. As part of the current state support measures, subsidies in the amount of more than 2 billion rubles were provided for these purposes, which made it possible to compensate farmers for half of the costs incurred.
- This year we plan to subsidize another 5 thousand hectares of new irrigation at a cost of 800 million rubles. With 426 million rubles in the consolidated budget, just like last year, we will reimburse 50% of agricultural producers' costs from the budget. In general, by 2024, we plan to increase these areas by another 52 thousand hectares with a total cost of 10 billion rubles. Thus, the irrigated area in the region for eight years until 2024 will increase by 73 thousand hectares, which is 2,5 times higher than the area of 2016, - said the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Stavropol Territory Vyacheslav Dryiger.
