The more so, that United Russia has supported the project. We shall allocate out share of money!» - Sergey Katanandov told.

However, even start-up of the first phase of the the sewage disposal plant will not allow to solve the task of provision of clean water. Next it is necessary to launch construction of the second starting complex where the water will undergo further disinfecting and residual chlorine clearance. During the meeting it was discussed how to receive federal financing for the second phase. For this purpose the city together with republican authorities should prepare the construction documents.
