NEURC resumes implementation of 2022 investment programs stopped due to war by water suppliers

KYIV. May 4 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission of Ukraine (NEURC) resumed the implementation of investment programs for 2022 by licensees in the field of centralized water supply and sanitation.

The decision to invalidate NEURC Resolution No. 341 dated March 9, 2022, which suspended the implementation of investment programs approved by the regulator for 2022 by water suppliers, was adopted at its meeting on Tuesday.

According to NEURC, the restoration of investment programs streamlines relations in the field of centralized water supply and sanitation under martial law and is aimed at ensuring the sustainable functioning of the public utilities sector and the economy of Ukraine.

At the same time, according to the resolution, centralized water supply and sewerage enterprises shall analyze the priority and feasibility of implementing the measures provided for by the investment programs for 2022, and, if necessary, make proposals for changes to them.

The purpose of the changes is to improve the technical condition and restore the centralized water supply and drainage facilities damaged as a result of hostilities.

In addition, the regulator canceled the requirement for licensees in the field of centralized water supply and sanitation to hold open discussions of investment programs for 2022 and amendments to them.

"NEURC will continue to take measures to create the necessary regulatory field to facilitate the speedy restoration of public utility facilities affected by hostilities," the regulator said in the report.
