Reconstruction of Ghajn tal-Hasselin, cleaning of Simirat Valley and purchase of eco truck

`Mgarr Harbour twilightThis project involves the reconstruction of Għajn tal-Ħasselin monument and the formation of a roof belvedere, the top of which may be accessed from the existing stepped passageway. The Għajnsielem Local Council is also proposing to clean Simirat valley starting from the proximity of Triq Borg Għarib, through the first stretch of buildings of Triq Simirat and ending in an underground tunnel which passes through Pjazza tad-Dehra and conveys the water into the valley passing through Ta' Passi. Only one dam is present in this valley. The cleaning of the valley will aid to increase the rainwater conservation capacity and also eliminate flooding problems for the benefit of residents living beneath the valley. Another component of this project is the procurement of an eco truck to be used by the Local Council.

This project by Ghajnsielem Local Council was eligible for 95% of its funding through the eco-Gozo 2nd scheme for Local Councils.
