President again dissatisfied with work of sewage system in Ashgabat

At a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on February 8, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov expressed dissatisfaction with the work of the utilities structures to minimize the influence of weather factors and their consequences. Deputy Prime Minister Dadebay Amangeldiev reported on the results of activities in the construction and energy complexes and in the utilities sector . According to the TDH state news agency , the president noted that in winter, due to rainy weather, the general groundwater level could rise, which could lead to their penetration into the basements of the buildings through the sewer system or through various drains and ordered to take the necessary measures to prevent such a situation . Berdymukhamedov stressed that it is necessary to ensure that the leaders of enterprises and companies building buildings and structures in the city pay special attention to such factors, strictly observing all the requirements when drawing up projects. It is necessary to study on a scientific basis the possibilities of effective use of rain and mudslide. Recall that for the first time the topic of the inefficient operation of the sewage system in Ashgabat was raised after many districts of the capital were flooded in May 2018 as a result of heavy rains . Then Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov instructed Deputy Prime Minister Dadebay Amangeldiyev to build new ones and refine the previous showers. After that, in Ashgabat began to carry out the appropriate repair work . Source: Chronicles of Turkmenistan
