This improves the safety and reliability of their operation.

About 150 kilometers of water supply and sewerage networks will be reconstructed in the capital in 2022, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for housing and communal services and improvement Petr Biryukov.

“The city is carrying out large-scale systematic work to upgrade engineering communications, the ongoing activities can improve the safety and reliability of network operation. Last year, 85 kilometers of water supply and sewerage networks were reconstructed, and 150 kilometers are planned for this year,” he said.

The deputy mayor emphasized that Moscow is the leader in the renovation of engineering systems among Russian cities. Since 2011, almost 1,200 kilometers of water pipes and more than 540 kilometers of sewerage networks have been reconstructed in the capital.

“The city annually upgrades and reduces the wear and tear of all networks by 2.4 percent,” said Petr Biryukov. “Today, the capital’s engineering infrastructure has a high margin of safety, as evidenced by the long-term absence of incidents on the networks that lead to long-term disconnection of consumers.”

The head of the municipal economy complex said that work on the reconstruction of networks is being carried out in all districts of the capital. More than 90 percent of them are performed using trenchless methods. For example, specialists carry out the drawing of a new pipeline in an existing pipe, polymer sleeves are used for restoration, and the horizontal directional drilling method is used.

“The use of modern technologies makes it possible to minimize discomfort for residents, and the looped nature of the Moscow central water supply system makes it possible to ensure that routine and repair work is carried out without disconnecting subscribers,” Petr Biryukov concluded.
