Some cities in Ukraine due to the lack of chlorine may be left without centralized water supply, in other cities the water supply can be significantly limited.
As reports a press-service of joint-stock company “Kyivvodocanal” in the middle of June the joint-stock company Dniproazot, which is a manufacturer of liquid chlorine used by water utilities for the disinfection of drinking water, warned that it would stop deliveries and stop the production of liquid chlorine.
In this regard, the industry water supply and sanitation sector of Ukraine has created a complex situation with further disinfection of drinking water. Some of the industry residual chlorine left from a week to 20 days.
About the situation, the Association “Ukrvodokanalekologiya” immediately notified the government and the national security Council to intervene and resolve the issue with the supply of chlorine.
June 23 in the Dnieper RSA held a meeting, which was allegedly reached agreement with the leadership of “DneprAzot” to resume production of chlorine.
“But unfortunately, until now, “DneprAzot” did not resumed its work. The remnants of chlorine, which was at the time of his stay, fully implemented,” – said in the message.
Also, according to the press service of “Kyivvodocanal”, to address the issue with the reagents for the disinfection of water in centralized water supply held a joint meeting of representatives of water utilities, suppliers of disinfectants, representatives of equipment suppliers for alternative disinfection methods.
“In Ukraine there is a company that is trying to organize a large amount of chlorine in containers by road, but the issuance of permits and other procedures takes more than a year. Moreover, these specialized containers is not enough. The supply of chlorine in tanks from Europe (Romania) is very problematic. European tanks can’t change the wheelbase, and shall be certified on the territory of Ukraine. In tanks chlorine get Kiev, Kharkov, Krivoy Rog, Mariupol and other cities,” – said the press service of the company.
“So, other alternative today than the solution of urgent production run, no”, – emphasized in “Kievvodokanale.”
Thus, if the plant do not urgently resume its work, in the beginning of next week supply of water in the centralized water supply network in some regions and cities of Ukraine can be significantly limited, and in some cities and completely stopped, added the company.
Earlier Kyivvodokanal warned about the possible collapse of the drinking water.
