Uzbekistan is working to modernise Tashkent's water system. The renovations are designed to help improve water quality, reduce leakage en route to the consumer and cut costs, officials and analysts say. The city's pipeline replacement programme will start this autumn and last through the end of 2015, Uzbek Cabinet of Ministers spokesman Bakhtiyor Khasanov told Central Asia Online.
