First in district drinking water deironing station launched at Osipovichi

Osipovichi Vodokanal has launched drinking water deironing station at Sosnovyi settlement where the question was burning; the first in the district station is functioning in a test mode.

First water is produced from a 170-m deep borehole and gets to a special reservoir. The iron containing in the water is oxidized and settled due to air fed to pipes. Filters – three reservoirs of about 2 m high and 0.2 m in diameter – are filled with 4 layers of high-silica sand of different fraction (from 0.4 mm to 5 mm) providing additional purification. And only after that water is supplied for drinking. As soon as filters are clogged, automatic wash system switches on.

According to chief engineer of Vodokanal Dmitry Belyi, the quality of water supplied to the settlement will gradually improve. The station has been tested, the analysis will be made twice a week. System adjustment will be completed by the year end, and since then Sosnovyi will be steadily supplied with pure water, Dmitry Belyi specified. Still, both washing of pipeline network and replacement of outdated equipment must be carried out.
The same station will be launched at Osipovichi youth water supply point in 2014.
