Industrial innovations affected residents, Kirov, Soviet, October, Railway, Samara and Leninsky districts. The management of "Samara municipal systems" that provides residents with water, breathed a sigh of relief — the yellow water is legal, so — numerous complaints Samara residents can forward to the regional CPS.
At the main technologist "Samara municipal systems" Yulia Egorova
on unpleasant tap water has an explanation. Blame the climatic features of this autumn-winter season, which led to major changes in the composition of the pool of the Saratov Reservoir, including the rising prevalence of color, which is not typical for the winter. "Color of water — physical and chemical parameters, which determines the organoleptic properties," — explained Yegorov. According to her, in this February in terms of color the water reservoir in the Saratov region of Samara reaches 44-54 degrees, while in the last five years, no more than 16-25. And in Ulyanovsk and Kazan figure increased to 80-120 degrees. According to Yulia Egorova, by all standards, except for the color, the water is fully consistent SanPiN 126.96.36.1994-01 and color of water at the time of its filing with the water main networks can be reduced to 9,5-20 degrees.
"Going through the main networks and in-house water pipes, color enhanced, — underline the communal services. — Thus, in some houses Samara, mainly in the old housing stock, the water has a yellow tint that matches 22-25 degrees, whereas in normal conditions — does not exceed 20 degrees. "
The assurance of the chief specialist — an expert on environmental sanitation department Rospotrebnadzor Samara region Natalia Krasilnikova, "tap water, prepared in accordance with the technical and sanitary requirements, even at high color, is safe for human health. World Health Organization does not give its recommendations this figure. "
