Why are the hydroelectric power station at Gazivode and the lake important for Serbia and the Serbs in northern Kosovo?
Serbia is currently investing in the reconstruction of the dam on Lake Gazivoda near Zubin Potok, about one million euros.
More than 90 percent of the water mass in this lake, which would come under the control of the authorities of Pristina, comes from the water supply system in central Serbia  Artificial lake Gazivode and hydroelectric power station near Zubin Potok are one of the main sources of energy of the Republic of Serbia in northern Kosovo. The lake and hydroelectric power stations have economic, strategic and development capacity.
"The lake of Gazivoda with hydroelectric power plant can have a strong economic impact on the development of North Kosovo, because the annual income is about ten million euros." So much should be, at least as long as we speak here, the situation is not so ", said Director of JP" Ibar "HE Gazivode Srdjan Vulovic.
Gazi cities are often referred to as the meta of the authorities of Pristina who want to involve them in the Kosovo energy system. Hydroelectric power plant is owned and managed by EPS.
Despite the fact that no less than 74 percent of the surface of the lake lies on the territory of the municipality of Zubin Potok and 25.9 percent on the territory of Novi Pazar and Tutin, Pristina claims that it is their property.
Serbia invests all these years in Gazivode.
"All investment in large and small defense is done from the budget of the Republic of Serbia, and at the moment the reconstruction of the overflow wall is being carried out on a large dam," Vulovic added.
Thermal power plant in Obilić could not operate without water from Gazivoda. The tensions over Gazivoda were fueled by the deployment of KFOR troops. Their members were even visible at the lake today.
"I think this is one of the most important facilities and resources we have of the Serbs in the north of Kosovo, in general, Serbs throughout Kosovo. Without the hydroelectric power station and the Gazivode lake there is no survival of the Serbs, neither north nor south, "said Goran Kasalovic of Zubin Potok.
A ball with artificial lake and hydroelectric power stations falls down because the one who controls them has the energy sources of almost all of Kosovo under control. For the time being, the employees of the company work "Ibar" HE Gazivode.
The lake is 24 kilometers long, the height of the dam is 107 meters, it is in fact 460 meters long and 408 meters long.
