Summmary

La Nihalcea pond system situates in Ştefan Voda district and is part of Ramsar "Lower Dniester". The present ecological state of La Nihalcea reservoir is not satisfactory: The quality of water is under pressure from agriculture and other diffuse sources (phosphates, nitrates etc.).
The project (partly funded by GEF/UNDP to Purcari Development Fund ) aims to improve ecological conditions of La Nihalca pond system through re-cultivation of the lake, re-naturalization of watershed and revegetation of its shores and riparian belt using smart biotech methods. Also recreational zone is set up for ecotourism development purposes and MoU between water users is signed.
