To improve water supply to consumers and provide them with quality and sustainable drinking water “Azersu” OJSC is taking comprehensive measures. The washing of central and local reservoirs in Baku and the Absheron Peninsula, as well as in the regions, is in progress according to schedule.
The reservoirs on the balance of “Azersu” OJSC are washed and disinfected at least once a year, in accordance with the approved instructions. For this purpose, the reservoirs are completely emptied and their bottoms are cleaned of sludge. Afterwards, the reservoirs are carefully checked by specialists to determine their suitability for operation and potentially dangerous places are identified and restored. After disinfection, the pools are re-commissioned on the basis of certificates provided by the Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology, which carries out state control over water quality. During the operation, water samples are taken from the reservoirs every day and analyzed in the Central Laboratory.
Work in this area is still ongoing. In January-April 2022, 305 central and local water reservoirs with a total volume of 490,000 cubic meters were washed, cleaned and disinfected. In general, in 2022, it is planned to wash and clean 870 warehouses with a total volume of more than 1 million cubic meters in Baku and the Absheron Peninsula, as well as in the regions.
Reservoirs not owned by “Azersu” OJSC and belonging to housing cooperatives (HCC) must also be washed and cleaned at least once a year. In this regard, the heads of HCC are informed, they are informed that it is necessary to wash and clean the reservoirs for the safety of drinking water supplied to the population.
