In 2020 the upward trend in customer satisfaction with the services of Sofiyskla Voda, operated by Veolia, continued. That becomes clear from the annual sociological survey of Alpha Research agency*, conducted at the end of 2020.

The rate of approval of the water meter reading system is also high, as an increase is also reported and it reaches 87-88%.
A large part of the results in the survey has been influenced by the epidemic situation in Sofia last year. Despite the particular circumstances in which the company operated in 2020, there is high appraisal of the supplied services and the attitude of the Sofiyska Voda’s employees during the pandemic. 19% of the respondents express their fully positive impressions, 53% have somewhat positive impressions, and 25% of them cannot form an opinion.
