Second Water Well of Arkhangelsk Ground Water-Intake Facility Completed in Ulyanovsk Region
The work is carried out within the federal project "Clean Water" under the national project "Ecology", which was initiated by President Vladimir Putin.
According to Alexander Cherepan, Minister of Energy, Public Utilities and Urban Environment of Ulyanovsk Region, reconstruction of the Arkhangelsk water-intake facility, which requires three new artesian wells, is to be completed by the end of 2020. The capacity of this installation will increase thanks to the project, which will provide high-quality drinking water to urban-type settlements of Cherdaklinsky District - Oktyabrsky, Mirny and Cherdakly. This work will cost 19.4 million rubles. Construction of a 7.2 km-long water main to Oktyabrsky has already begun and should be completed in 2021. The final stage will include a new water pipeline from Oktyabrsky to Cherdakly; this project is planned for 2023-2024.
At the same time, Cherdaklinsky District is currently checking its readiness to receive drinking water from the new water supply facilities. According to Alexey Shmyrev, Director of OGKP "Ulyanovsk Regional Water Service Company", the state-owned enterprise will complete project design documents for reconstruction of water supply networks in Oktyabrsky and Cherdakly in December 2020. The regional budget has provided 4.3 million rubles for these purposes. After construction of the new water-supply facilities in settlements of Cherdaklinsky District, the quality of water will improve for twenty thousand residents of Oktyabrsky, Mirny and Cherdakly.
