Planned shutdowns of hot water related to the preparations for the new heating season began in the capital on May 16.

As Deputy Mayor of Moscow Pyotr Biryukov told RIA Novosti, this measure is necessary for high-quality hydraulic testing, which makes it possible to detect unreliable sections of heating networks and take timely measures to eliminate them.

He noted that all preventive work will be completed by September. During this period, hydraulic tests will be carried out on 17,000 km of networks.

Recall that on May 14 in the capital began to turn off the heating. Today, May 16, this phased process should be completed. 74,000 buildings will be cut off from heating, 34,000 of them are residential buildings.
