Centralized water supply in Transcarpathia will not be suspended
Due to the shutdown of the Ukrainian company "Dnipro-Azot", Transcarpathia, like other regions, may be left without drinking water.
The stock of chlorine for the uninterrupted operation of the pump-filtering stations of the region will last just for several weeks. After that, the enterprises will be forced to stop centralized supply of water to the citzens, which will inevitably lead to an outbreak of infectious diseases.
In Transcarpathia, liquid chlorine is used for the disinfection of drinking water at 18 enterprises of the water utility.
Hennadiy Moskal appealed to the Consulate General of Hungary in Uzhgorod requesting to supply to Transcarpathia liquid chlorine needed for purification of drinking water.
- Today we have received the answer that Hungary, which is a producer of chlorine, responded to our request and will provide Transcarpathia with this humanitarian aid, - H. Moskal says. - The mechanism for the fastest transportation of liquid chlorine is now being determined, and we expect it to arrive next week. Preliminarily, it will be a month and a half stock of chlorine for Transcarpathia, and in that time, hopefully, the "Dnipro-Azot" will resume its production.
