The stocks of the liquid chlorine in Kyiv are running extremely low; the lack of the substance used for cleansing of the water may result in the situation where the residents may be left without supplies of drinking water. UNN news agency reported that, referring to Kyivvodokanal, the local state-run company, responsible for drinking water supplies for households and technical facilities in Kyiv.
'Kyivvodokanal' has enough liquid chlorine for one month only', reads the respective document. There's also a notion that all water, which is taken from various sources (Dnipro and Desna rivers, as well as artesian boreholes) needs cleansing.
Previously, Ukrainian water companies faced a tough situation with the disinfection of water supplies, since Dniproazot company, the manufacturer of liquid chlorine announced that it would stop production of the substance and, thus, stop the supplies. Due to the fact, some water pipeline companies have enough chlorine for up to no more than 20 days.
In spite of the fact that the government already reached the agreement with Dniproazot, the production still has not been restored so far.
