Development of water consumption culture
The main services provided by SUE “Vodokanal of St.Petersburg” to the city of 5 million inhabitants are water supply and wastewater disposal. Customers pay to Vodokanal for the services provided, and the Company’s income depends on the volume of the consumed water. It would seem that the more water is used by customers, companies and organizations, the more Vodokanal’s profit will be. It would seem that Vodokanal should be interested in the increase of water consumption. However, for twenty years “Vodokanal of St.Petersburg” has been carrying out an active work with customers in order to reduce (to be correct, optimize) city-specific water consumption.
