Winter Drought Threatens Kosovo Capital’s Water
The Kosovo capital is facing continued curbs on use of running water, following the driest winter in more than 20 years.
While parts of northern Europe endure their wettest winter since records began, authorities in the Kosovo capital, Pristina, say they must continue curbing the water supply following a winter drought.
Gjelosh Vataj, from the Regional Water Company, said the local Batllava lake reservoir had lost a couple more centimetres in only 24 hours.
Measures entered into force about two weeks ago and in some areas of Pristina water is now on for only seven or eight hours a day.
Dardan Gashi, Minister of Environment, warned that cutting down the use of water was not a permanent solution to the problem. “We don’t save much water by reducing the supply, or resolve the problem [in the long term]”, he said.
Kosovo is coming to the end of the driest winter in years.
As a result, water levels have fallen in the Batlava and Badovc basins, due to the lack of rain and melt from snow.
If the weather does not change soon the reservoirs might dry up completely, which would leave some 400,000 people in the capital and the areas around it without any water supply.
The Kosovo Hydro-meteorological Institute expects some relief soon. “We expect rain to fall in the coming days,” Besim Aliu, from the institute, said.
Water outages are nothing new for Pristina. From late at night – usually around 11pm. – to around 5 or 6am, most homes and businesses are without running water. Cuts also happen from time to time during the day.
The Regional Water Company Prishtina says it does this because its two water treatment plants have not kept up with the city’s growing population.
According to the company’s 2013-2016 business plan, illegal connections and excessive consumption from suburban areas and villages also strain the water supply.
The company is planning to offer 24-hour water in 2016 or 2017 following the addition of a third water treatment plant……………..http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/article/kosovo-capital-faces-harsh-water-reductions

The Western power centers use the “Republic of Kosovo” as a testing ground for working out the ways to create a quasi-state that could be defined as an abnormal criminal case of global scope. The final goal is reshaping the whole of South East Europe. (www.strategic-culture.org)
The US needs Kosovo for deployment of military installations on its territory in order to control South East Europe where the routes to Middle East oil riches start. There are the following NATO or NATO used military facilities in the Balkans: Hungary (Taszar), Romania (Deveselu, the port of Constanza, Mihail Kogalniceanu air base ), Bulgaria (the Novo Selo Training Range, Aitos Logistics Center near Burgas, Bezmer Air Base near Yambola, Graf Ignatievo air force base), Bosnia and Herzegovina (installations near Banja Luka, Mostar, Sarajevo, a small facility near Doboj), Croatia (Shepurin, Slun, Đakovo, Pula), Macedonia (Petrovec, a base near Kumanovo, Krivolak), Greece (Crete, and installations near Larissa) and finally Kosovo, (Bondstill and two installations near Montiff near Gnillane, a base near Vitina, artillery installation near Kaçanik, a base near Balovac near Podujeva). (4) According to Geiro the Kosovo Liberation Army is a punitive force that includes heads of mafia clans and is destined to oppress civilian population. It could never come to power without NATO and other Western power centers. (5)…………
Now Kosovo has become a training center of Syrian militants. The Syrian «opposition» asked the Kosovo Liberation Army for help in April 2012. It promised the recognition of Kosovo by «new Damascus» in return. The terrorist KLA leaders and Islamic extremists from Bosnia and Herzegovina rendered «support» in training Syrian paramilitary groups. Dzevad Galiashevic, member of expert team for South East Europe in fight against terrorism, claims the training centers are still based in the previous KLA locations, including the territory of Macedonia. Abdussamed Bushatlic, a former Al-Mujahedeen militant, a Wahhabi movement leader in Bosnia and Herzegovina, was among those who were seen there. According to Galiashevic missionary and ideological activities are conducted in Macedonia, Kosovo is a place of military preparatory activities. All terrorist activities are done under the patronage of NATO- led Kosovo Force (KFOR). The training camps are located in Drenitsa (the hamlet of Likovats, Yablanitsa and Glodjana). There are new training facilities built for mujahedeen from Muslim countries. One of them is situated in Drenica, another in Metohija (the hamlet of Smonitsa near Djakovica. Zoran Stijovic, former Serbian State Security officer in the 1990s, says the training is conducted for two types of operations: subversive-terrorist activities and intelligence gathering. The instructors are not Albanians only, the export model of Syrian revolution is prepared with the help of CIA operatives, Albanian KLA terrorists and the extremists from Bosnia and Herzegovina. (8) On June 20 2012 the Syrian army started a battle for the second largest city Aleppo, there were 400 «rebels» liquidated. The identification of the dead showed Kosovo Albanians fought on the side of terrorists along with the mercenaries from other countries.
NATO does not comment Kosovo’s announcement on the establishment of a new armed force, the Kosovo daily writes. Koha Ditore quotes officials from NATO saying the announcement “is used ahead of parliamentary elections”, while they stressed their belief Kosovo will keep to its promises and not make any step towards the establishment of an army.
