For a sixth consecutive year SV conducts the initiative “Quench the Heat”. By tradition employees from SV give clean potable water in the center of Sofia. This year every passer-by along the pedestrian zone along Vitosha Boulevard has the opportunity to pour themselves from a specially manufactured for the purpose “water men”.
They are a kind of art installation and resemble the shape of the human body. The taps are made entirely of the new materials used by SV in the WSS network of Sofia. A few technologies were used for pipe connection, which demonstrate how the WSS system of Sofia is rehabilitated. The art-taps were designed and constructed by SV employees. The first of them was made during the Day of Sofia – 17 September 2015
“According to the weather for July 21 and 22 (Thursday and Friday) the temperature will increase. That is why, we remind how important it is to drink enough water regularly” state from the water company.
A special mobile laboratory inspects and demonstrates the quality of the potable water in Sofia during the event. Sofia residents and guests of Sofia can see the “water men” also during the traditional festival “Sofia breathes” every Sunday of August.
