Rehabilitation works of the tunnel in the vicinities of the Travertine – sour water mountain in Kazbegi, were suspended. Representatives of the Ministry of Environment said the construction, which damaged travertine was not illegal because the territory did not have status of natural monument. However, the Agency of Reserved Territories stated the vicinities will have the status in order to avoid similar facts in future.
