current accounts with the special mode of use for borrowing facilities (further - special accounts for borrowing facilities) - the accounts of subjects of managing in the field of centralized water supply and water disposal opened in national or foreign currency, intended for accumulating and use of the credit (loan) means received from international financial institutions, foreign public institutions or according to intergovernmental agreements or the funds raised by the state or subjects of managing in the field of centralized water supply and water disposal under the state or local guarantees only for preparation and accomplishment of investing programs (actions) in the specified sphere at the expense of such means and also for receipt of funds for return and servicing of the credit (loan) according to agreements of the credit (loan);

the company of drinking water supply - the subject of managing performing operation of subjects to centralized drinking water supply, providing the population with drinking water by means of flood Items (including portable), application of installations (devices) of preparation of drinking water and production of the packed-up drinking water;

drinking water supply - the activities connected with production, transportation and/or supply with drinking water of consumers of drinking water, protection of sources and systems of drinking water supply;

Item of spill of drinking water - the place of spill of drinking water (from truck tanks, wells, piping, etc.) in the consumer's container;

Item of compliance of quality of drinking water - the place of sampling of water in which compliance of quality of water to hygienic requirements to drinking water is established, namely:

from cranes of systems of drinking water supply - for tap drinking water;

in places of flood in consumer pack - for the packed-up drinking water;

in places of flood in the consumer's container - for drinking water from Items of spill of drinking water;
