In the Kursk region, the quality of drinking water deteriorated by 8.2% due to flooding


The Rospotrebnadzor office for the Kursk region spoke about strengthening sanitary and epidemiological surveillance during the passage of flood waters.

It should be noted that in 2023, gradual snowmelt in the region contributed to a moderate level of flooding. However, even with minor flooding of wells and other water supply facilities, there are still risks of deteriorating water quality. Therefore, Rospotrebnadzor specialists have strengthened laboratory control over the state of this vital resource.

In addition, the department sent letters to heads of municipalities warning them of increased attention to major water supply and sanitation facilities, municipal landfills, animal cemeteries, outdoor and public toilets, and the clearing the territories of the colonies.

Rospotrebnadzor has developed drinking water quality and safety monitoring programs. Samples of the water supply are taken for analysis at least once a week.

“194 drinking water samples have already been examined. 13 samples did not meet the requirements of the standards for sanitary and chemical indicators, and 3 samples – for microbiological indicators. The proportion of unsatisfactory samples was 8.2 percent,” the regional administration’s press service said.

Drinking water quality monitoring continues.
