At about 6 pm on September 21, a cast-iron pipeline burst, carrying water from wells to the Tsentralny water intake. A transverse crack 3 meters long formed on it. The length of the pipeline itself is 3 km.
Specialists examined the accident site, determined the location of the breakthrough and immediately began to eliminate it.
At 2 o’clock in the morning, workers of the emergency brigade replaced the damaged section of the water conduit. After that, they flushed the system until the morning.
— The specialists of the enterprise solve this problem in a permanent round-the-clock mode. Why this happened and how to avoid similar situations in the future – we will decide promptly. At present, the enterprise provides drinking water supply to the microdistricts of the city and, of course, a recalculation for consumers will be carried out. The deterioration of water supply networks in the city is significant; for many years, no comprehensive modernization has been carried out. This year, work began on the repair of the water conduit at the expense of the district budget, – said the head of Naryan-Mar, Oleg Belak.
He added that the governor of the NAO, Yuri Bezdudny, and the deputies of the district allocated 70 million rubles for the repair of water conduits. After the completion of the entire complex of works on the modernization of water pipelines, such situations will be an exception.
