“If it does not rain, it will be all gone here”

“The inhabitants had plenty of water. There were also some marshes in the area full of water, flora and fauna were special. But now, unfortunately all has dried up, it is outrageous. People are resentful, as because of these changes they are suffering,” says Angela Ceban, mayor of Cuhnești.

“There will be huge benefits, the population will suffer no more and we hope tourism will develop. Where there is no water, there is nothing. In spring, autumn, here it used to be both fauna and birds, and swans, now there is nothing”, concludes the mayor of Cuhnești.
