Once, Prypiat was able to prevent a technogenic disaster of the Dnipro river and, as a result, drinking water for most Ukrainians. Slavutych is a reincarnated Prypiat, bearing the alternative name of the Dnipro itself, which is quite symbolic.

We believe that the “youngest city of Ukraine” can become a model for other cities in returning Ukrainian water to its original source. Consequently, in addition to public service improvements, there are elements in the main city square that familiarize visitors with water issues and show solutions. In particular, the 2 main 8-meter installation drops. One of them shows the problem of excessive consumption. The other is about ubiquitous micro-plastics pollution. As an example of sustainable development, rainwater collection from the roofs is organised. Then water is filtered. In such a way visitors are provided with recycled water in dry fountains and drinking fountains.
