"Chloride started arriving from Romania in small lots, 30-40 tons a week, but this is not enough for the general need. Slovakia, Poland can start shipping and chlorine by these contracts could come to Ukraine before August 30. As for Uzbekistan, they now confirm the possibility of supplying of chlorine in tanks. This is also the end of August, "Babiy noted.
She added that now all the capacities are being re-equipped, which would allow Kyiv and Kryvyi Rih to take chlorine tanks and transfuse it into containers for other consumers.
As it was reported earlier, 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.
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.
