   Drinking water crisis is a present days problem especially for Republic of Moldova, mostly for the rural localities, which represents more than a half of countrys population. Only 17 of them have aqueducts, 67% of which are in a miserable situation and dont fit the hygiene standard. The populations in the rest of the rural localities make their water supply from wells and springs, the majority of which are polluted with pathological bacteria. The Republic of Moldova is a member of the group of European counties with the lowest degree of supplying with drinking water. Only the population of Chisinau city and other towns receive continually the necessary amount of relatively qualitative water. The rural inhabitants access to qualitative drinking water cant be presently satisfied because of the low income level (20-25 USD for person per month) and also because of lack of money in local and state budget.
