Water and Waste Water Services in the Russian Federation: A Study of Four Vodokanaly
Considerable economic reform has occurred within the Russian Federation (RF), but so far most of the services provided by local government have received relatively little attention. This study looks at one of the largest of the communal services, water and sewerage. The study is based on interviews with officials in relevant government departments and regulatory agencies and the senior management of vodokanaly in four major cities of the RF. The fieldwork was undertaken in February and March 1998. The interviews were supplemented by documentation supplied by the water enterprises, government departments and agencies. The study finds evidence of major shortcomings in the provision of water services with some parts of the industry reaching crisis point because of under-funding and ineffective management.
