Razvozhayev promised to complete the pipe repairing on August 16.
Meanwhile, the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing Rospotrebnadzor of Crimea banned swimming on four Sevastopol beaches: Gorodskoy (City), Mramornyi (Marble), Park Pobedy (Victory Park) and Omega.
For how long the ban on visiting beaches will be valid is not reported.
However, based on the results of unsatisfactory microbiological indicators of sea water, proposals to examine the coastal area of beaches in order to detect wastewater discharges into the sea were sent.
Earlier, eyewitnesses told how suspicious spots appeared in the sea near the Sevastopol Tsarsky Beach. However, no signs of visual pollution of the water area were observed by "authorities" examination.
On July 11, Russian President Vladimir Putin removed Dmitry Ovsyannikov from the post of “governor” of Sevastopol and appointed the interim “head” of Sevastopol the Siberian Mikhail Razvozhayev.
