“Azersu” OJSC has launched a new project to reconstruct the internal water supply systems of multi-apartment buildings. Currently, as part of the project implemented in Baku and Sumgayit, as well as in the surrounding settlements, the vertical supports inside the buildings are canceled and removed to the stairwells, then each subscriber is provided with a meter.

The project, which aims to provide consumers with water meters, covers 430 Soviet period residential buildings and individual houses in Sabail, Nasimi, Yasamal, Binagadi, Narimanov, Khatai and Garadagh districts of Baku, as well as Sumgayit city and Absheron district. For this purpose, it is planned to install up to 28,000 meters in apartments and private houses. More than 3,000 meters have already been installed under the project, which began in September this year.

According to the approved project, new water lines laid by the contractors will be connected to the existing systems inside the apartments. In some cases, citizens demand the construction of additional water lines or other works inside the apartments that are not provided for in the project. In this case, citizens may carry out such work at their own expense or with the involvement of an outside contractor by mutual agreement with the contractor. “Azersu” OJSC is not responsible for any work not intended in the project and payment for the funds inside the apartment.


There is no charge for subscribers to lay new lines, install meters and make connections within the apartment in accordance with the project. If citizens face such situations, they are asked to apply to the 955 Call Center of “Azersu” OJSC.

It should be noted that most of the buildings built during the Soviet period have internal water supply systems installed in the pits. In some cases, water leaks and drains occur because the upright supports are used for a long time. This causes apartments and basements to be flooded. Removal of indoor water supply systems from the pits to the staircases will prevent water leaks, while improving the quality of service by making it easier to operate water lines and read meters. At the same time, the installation of meters in each apartment and the removal of meters to the staircases will lead to accurate accounting, timely collection of debts and the absence of receivables.

Since 2013, indoor water supply systems have been transferred to the balance of “Azersu” OJSC, and in the past, internal water supply systems of more than 6,000 multi-apartment residential buildings in the Absheron Peninsula and regions have been reconstructed at the expense of state investments.
