JSC Nenskra Hydro Statement on the Chuberi Flooding

JSC Nenskra Hydro, the Nenskra Hydropower Plant (HPP) project company, released a statement onthe natural disaster that occured in Chuberi village, Mestia municipality, on June 7.

According to the company's information, on June 7, 2019, as a result of heavy rain, the Nenskra River tributary Devrula overflowed into Chuberi village. The Devrula bridge was damaged and resulted in paralyzed traffic movement, which has already been restored. In order to ensure the safety of local residents, traffic across the bridge on the River Marghula in Kvemo Marghi village was restricted.

The staff of JSC Nenskra Hydro is in continuous communication with the local community members to assist them as needed. The top management of JSC Nenskra Hydro has visited the site to get a clearer picture of the situation and heavy machinery of the Georgian Construction Consortium (GCC), a contractor company of JSC Nenskra Hydro, has been mobilized.

“The existence of a dam in the valley in the near future will enable us to control the water level in the river bed to prevent such natural events," said Teimuraz Kopadze, Chief Operations Officer of JSC Nenskra Hydro. "This will significantly reduce the risk to the population and infrastructure."

Since November 2018, JSC Nenskra Hydro has been carrying out preparatory works for the construction of Nenskra HPP in Chuberi, which included rehabilitation and bank-strengthening works on the areas damaged due to a flood on July 5, 2018.

To date, a 211-meter section of the road to Tita village has been fully rehabilitated and access restored. Bank-strengthening works are also complete. As part of the rehabilitation works, the damaged Chuberi bypass (945 m) was partly rehabilitated: the river-bed was cleaned, the existing road was widened and bank-strengthening measures were undertaken.

Corrugated pipes and wire grids were arranged to ensure the safety of residents in the vicinity of the village Lari-Lari.

Currently, rehabilitation works on the damaged road are being carried out on the project area (14.4 km): a stone embankment and temporary wooden bridges have been set up and the river-bed cleaned.
