Water standpipes in Upper Neyvinsky fitted with outflow counters
"The [water] column in front of my house were always a queue," Alexander Polnomochniy, an Upper Neyvinsky resident of Rosa Luxemburg Street, said, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta. "The utility decided to supply a magnetic lock in protection from vandals installed a surveillance camera. Now go fetch water, only those who has a contract with the supplier."
Each household that receives water from the water supply is charged $42 for monthly access to the magnetically-locked water taps and are limited to a monthly supply of 237 gallons.
Some local villagers, however, said the counters may inadvertently limit access to water and that the monthly allotment of 237 gallons per household is not enough when factoring personal consumption, vegetable gardens, livestock, washing machines and bathing, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.
