“Azersu” OJSC has launched a new project to reconstruct the internal water supply systems of residential buildings. As part of the project implemented in Javanshir Street, Khatai district, Baku, the upright log inside the buildings are removed and taken to the stairwells and each subscriber is provided with a meter.
The project, which aims to provide consumers with water meters, covers 22 apartment buildings built during the Soviet period in Khatai district. For this purpose, it is planned to install meters in 1516 apartments. In a short period of time, more than 520 apartments were provided with new connections and meters were installed.
At the same time, water lines in the neighbourhood are being renewed in the area due to the internal resources of “Azersu” OJSC. According to the project, distribution water lines with a total length of 3,400 meters are being laid in the neighbourhoods, and 30 per cent of the work has been completed up to date.
Removal of indoor water supply systems from the pits to the staircases and reconstruction of the local network will prevent future water flows to the basements of buildings, reduce water losses and improve the quality of service. At the same time, the installation of meters in each apartment and the removal of meters to the stairwells will lead to accurate accounting, timely collection of debts and the absence of receivables.
It should be noted that water supply systems inside the buildings have been transferred to the balance of “Azersu” OJSC since 2013, and in the past period, internal water supply systems of more than 6,000 residential buildings in the Absheron Peninsula and regions were reconstructed at the expense of state investments.
