Landscape Water Management Project

FAST-BS007Acad. year: 2018/2019

Project will solve complex watershed protection including erosion control measures for protection of agricultural land resources, water management measures for improvement of water conditions, for drainage of water, for flood control, for surface water and groundwater protection and irrigation and drainage structures. The design of small water reservoir-pond.
