Krasnodar, 15 July.
The construction of three water treatment facilities will reportedly begin in Krasnodar krai next year in the framework of a national project. The facilities will be located in Temriuk, Kanevsky and Krylovsky rayons. The announcement was made during the visiting conference held by Russia’s Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev held last week in Maikop. The conference was attended by the Presidential Plenipotentiary in the Southern Federal District Vladimir Ustinov, Kuban Governor Veniamin Kondratiev, and regional Prosecutor Sergei Tabelsky.
“Many regions are experiencing deficiency of good potable water. The current degree of wear and tear and failure of the quality of the existing water wells to environmental requirements negatively affects various water bodies, including the offshore areas of the Black and Azov Seas,” Mr. Patrushev stated.
In his turn, Mr. Ustinov said that despite the implementation of regional programs of the national project, many problems persisted.
Mr. Kondratiev reported that 37 sewerage systems located at the seaside need upgrading, for they have been used for over fifty years.
“The reconstruction of 15 facilities in Sochi, Novorossiysk, Anapa, Tuapse and Yeisk will make it possible to treat over 85% of the effluents discharged into the Black and Azov Seas. The cost of the reconstruction works is 56,5 billion roubles,” he said.
