Situation with water supply in Sevastopol, Crimea is critical, deputy Governor of Sevastopol Andrew Atamantsev announced.
"Rainfall situation corresponds to 1993, when the main source of water for the city - Chernorechenskoye reservoir was selected to the "dead" volume and the water in the apartment residents fed per 2-3 hours a day", Atamantsev noted.
As of November 12 to the Chernorechenskye reservoir is 8.7 million cubic meters of water. Of these, 3 million cubic meters - untouchable emergency stock, still 3 million - "dead" volume, after which begin to die living organisms, and 1 million - the silt. Thus, the effective volume of 1.7 million cubic meters, and it is only enough for 16 days - until 27 November, and the sacred emergency reserve - until 26 December.
It should be noted that problems with water can lead to problems with heating and, as to feed the heating system requires daily from 10 to 13 thousand cubic meters of water.
Following Crimea’s annexation, Ukraine has halted water supplies to Crimea via North Crimean Canal, noting over UAH 1.7 million debt should be paid and new prices agreed
The North Crimean Canal is the largest hydrological installation in Europe and delivers water from the Dnieper river to the Kherson region and Crimea. Nearly 85% of the sweet water in Crimea was delivered via this canal.
