Control measures to prevent water losses and waste are being continued by “Azersu” OJSC in accordance with the "Action Plan for 2020-2022" approved by President Ilham Aliyev to ensure the efficient use of water resources. As a result of monitoring carried out in Yasamal district, cases of illegal and off- meter water use were revealed.
Illegal use of water was mostly recorded in Yasamal district on Mohammad Khiyabani Street. The vast majority of "slum" type kebab shops operating here used water illegally. Despite repeated warnings and water supply interruptions, facility owners are trying to use water illegally in various ways.
As a result of control measures carried out in Yasamal district, unregistered and off-meter water use was revealed in Yadigar market located on Asad Ahmadov Street.
