14 September 2022
After last regular meeting of WASH Cluster's technical group, at which, among other issues, the situation with water supply in the city of Mykolayiv was discussed, General Director of city utility enterprise "Mykolayivvodokanal" sent letter (is attached) to the Director of East Coast Distribution, Inc. Corporation and to the Chairman of the Board of Directors of NGO "Foundation for the Development of Water Treatment Technologies", which are, according to the Agreement about Joint Scientific, Innovative, and Production-Economic Activity, partners of National University of Water Management and Nature Management (founder of Science Park) with request to provide scientific and technical assistance.
In his letter, Mr. Dudenko noted that water from Buzkyi estuary (water with total salinity of about 8 g/dm3 and total hardness of about 25 mmol/dm3), that after chlorination and filtration through fast filters, is supplied according to the schedule through drinking water supply pipeline system of the city of Mykolayiv is, by definition, technical and causes an increase in accident rate of city's water supply networks.
Borys Leonidovych asks, among other things, to carry out in laboratory conditions of water utility the selection of optimal technological scheme for water stabilization and protection of pipelines against corrosion in real conditions of water treatment facilities operation.
