Installation of storm drains continues in Baku White City


Baku White City continues the improvement of water supply and sewerage.

In accordance with international construction requirements, within the framework of Baku White City General Plan Azersu OJSC designed and constructed independent storm drains and domestic wastewater sewerage.

For preventing the accumulation of rainwater on the streets and avenues of White City, additional locations of storm drains are being installed. A reinforced concrete collector along Nobel Avenue made of 1000 mm pipes at the intersection of Nobel Avenue and Najafgulu Rafiyev Street will be connected to a reinforced concrete 2500x1500 mm box collector overlooking the boulevard. This ensures the separation of storm water from domestic wastewater streams.
