Krasnodar, 31 July – Yug Times. Aleksandr Voloshin, regional Minister for Fuel and Power Sector, and Housing and Communal Services

Q.: For the Krasnodar region, water supply has traditionally been a challenging issue. How are things going in this sector now?

A.: In the region, 906 urban and rural settlements with the population of 4.8 million are provided with centralised systems of process and potable water supply. The total length of the water pipelines exceeds 28,000 km. However, we must admit that nearly a half, 49.1%, are in emergency state.

Q.: Why does the water supply issue aggravate in summer?

A.: It is our seaside and agricultural municipalities whose water supply networks are most worn-out. Due to the inflow of holidaymakers, water consumption increases; besides, because of the heat, people more often water their gardens in the summer. As a result, water consumption doubles, and the water mains work in forced operation conditions. Presently, it is the water mains in Yeisk and Taman that are in emergency condition.

Q.: For the last month, we have been experiencing quite hot weather in Kuban. Can the regional power industry deal with the high temperatures?

A.: The regional power system that receives holidaymakers from throughout Russia during the summer months, has a peculiarity which is that the maximum power load in summer exceeds that in winter. Shutoffs may happen due to two reasons: the first is when the stability control schemes and safety controls are activated. The second reason is related to the first one: it’s the blackouts, when the stability control schemes fail.
