In Kiev want to use sodium hypochlorite.
The Metropolitan government intends to abandon the treatment of drinking water with chlorine, but instead use sodium hypochlorite. This was stated by Deputy Chairman of KSCA Peter Panteleev.
“If we talk about the water utility, the purification system chlorine one of the most vulnerable areas. This system is technologically obsolete and dangerous to health. So now we prepared a feasibility study for construction of a plant for the production of sodium hypochlorite. It is a modern element to clean drinking water,” said the official.
He added that currently the city is negotiating with major foreign companies on their participation in the construction of such a plant.
“The question price – about 400 million UAH. According to our calculations, the plant will pay for itself in 5-6 years”, – said Panteleev.
He also added that now carry out the modernization of the chlorine management at the Dnieper and Desna water intake stations.
“So I can assure we have water of sufficiently good quality, all requirements are met in accordance with the law”, – said Panteleev.
