Zhinvali water reservoir

It was created in 1985 in the Aragvi ravine as a part of Zhinvali hydropower plant. Zhinvali water reservoir has a great importance for Tbilisi water supply. It should be noted that the Zhinvali reservoir supplies approximately half of Tbilisi population with drinking water. With the construction of Zhinvali HPP, the XII century church was covered by water. Every year during 6 months, with the reduction of water level, church is coming above the water, but another 6 months it stays covered by water.
