The problem with unpleasant odors was solved during the upgrade.
A large-scale reconstruction of the Zelenograd sewage treatment plants has been completed, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for housing and communal services and improvement Petr Biryukov.
“The work on the modernization of the Zelenograd treatment facilities has been completed, which resulted in the optimization of the drainage system and the complete elimination of unpleasant odors,” said Pyotr Biryukov.
According to him, the enterprise is equipped with the latest energy efficient equipment and automatic remote control systems.
The Deputy Mayor of Moscow recalled that the treatment facilities were commissioned in 2000.
“Initially, they were designed and built without separating sludge, so it had to be sent through the Khimki sewer to the Kuryanovsk treatment plant, which was difficult and costly,” said Pyotr Biryukov. “After the reconstruction, the enterprise operates a full cycle of wastewater treatment”.
According to him, four decanters are installed at the treatment plant for mechanical dewatering of excess activated sludge, which will then be transferred for disposal to licensed contractors.
The head of the municipal economy complex said that during the modernization, the problem with unpleasant odors was solved.
“All open sources of odors were blocked with special structures, which completely exclude the possibility of smelling substances entering the atmosphere,” stressed the Deputy Mayor of Moscow. “The ventilation system was reconstructed and eight gas cleaning units were installed”.
According to laboratory studies of air quality at the border with the nearest residential buildings, the standards were not exceeded after reconstruction.
Zelenograd treatment facilities serve not only Zelenograd, but also the adjacent territories of the Moscow region – Andreevka, Zhilino, Rzhavki, Mendeleevo and the village of Luginino. The inflow of waste water averages 80 thousand cubic meters per day.
