YEREVAN, January 23./ARKA/. Yerevan Djur company completed the year 2012 having provided a 94.5% weighted average constancy of water supply in Yerevan, as compared to 92.8% in 2011 and 87.8% in 2010, the company’s press service reported.
According to the report, 95% is a target for 2016, the last year of the lease agreement.
As of December 2012, 73.3% of subscribers had 24-hour supply.
Serious efforts were made to reduce the number of subscribers with minimum level of service. For instance, 8.9% of subscribers had from 12 to 17 hours of supply in December 2010. This percentage reduced to 3.7% in 2011 and to 3.3% in December 2012, according to the report.
These achievements were possible due to continuous savings policy. In particular, in 2011 Yerevan Djur abstracted 319.5mln cubic meters from sources, whereas in 2012 the abstraction was 307.3mln cubic meters. Despite the saving, water supply did not deteriorate in the capital and even became more stable due to better controllability of the distribution system, reduction of technical losses and legalization of illegal connections, says the report.
The water quality laboratory of the company carries out about 1,500 analyses of water samples both from sources and reservoirs throughout Yerevan every month. The analyses show that the quality of water supplied to subscribers is in line with the sanitary norms, according to the report.
The company is confident its achievements in 2012 and continuous efforts will ensure further progress in 2013.
Yerevan Djur closed joint stock resident company was established by French Generale des Eaux that won the tender for a 10-year lease of Yerevan water and sewerage. The company has got a license for management of the Yerevan water systems and provision of water supply, sewerage and wastewater treatment services in Yerevan, as well as in Ararat, Aragatsotn and Kotayk regions of Armenia.
