Kyivvodokanal denies information about flushing water supply pipelines with triple dose of chlorine
KYIV. Aug 31 (Interfax-Ukraine) – PrJSC Kyivvodokanal has denied information about the fact that the company flushed water supply pipelines with a triple dose of chlorine.
"Fake news [about the flushing of pipelines] is the manifestation of the hybrid war. Cold water sent to the central pipeline network is under permanent laboratory control," the press service of the company has reported, referring to Kyivvodokanal Director General Dmytro Novitsky.
Chief Engineer of the water supply department of Kyivvodokanal Volodymyr Kostiuk said that water supply companies are conducting scheduled maintenance with flushing of pipelines only in line with the schedule, notifying all residents of houses in the washing works zone in advance.
"Flushing measures are performed within six hours only at night with the release of flushing water into the sewage system, that is, without water supply to the houses. After carrying out the work, it is obligatory to carry out the water tests and only after obtaining the result of the tests a decision is made to supply water to the intra-house network, in other words directly to the homes of residents," Kostiuk said.
