The supply from the new water intake on the Belbek river has not yet been brought to full capacity
The volume of water that is planned to be obtained from the Belbek River during the spring flood will close the issue of water shortage in Sevastopol for six months.
In the annexed Crimea, a new water intake was built on the Belbek River to supply water to Sevastopol. It was launched in test mode and works without failures, said “Deputy Governor” Nikolai Zhigulin, reports TASS on Tuesday, March 2.
“In test mode, without loads, the work is underway. We test the equipment, see how all the mechanisms, metering units, automation behave. In the morning there were no failures. Flushing is completely finished, the tanks that are on the site – 4 thousand cubic meters – are filled . Work in a regular manner, no failures occur to date, “- said Zhigulin.
According to him, the supply from the new water intake has not yet been brought to full capacity.
“This is an experimental operational supply, not yet in the volumes that we planned. Today we are testing the equipment, we are looking at how all the mechanisms behave. When everything is already working out in the next couple of days, of course, we will supply water from the Chernorechensky reservoir (from which is supplied to the city now) we will limit it in order to accumulate it there, to accumulate it for the dry summer period, “he said.
The water intake was built by the forces of the RF Ministry of Defense. The volume of water that is planned to be obtained from the Belbek River during the spring flood will close the issue of water shortage in Sevastopol for six months.
According to the “deputy governor” of Sevastopol, water intake is now also being conducted from the Kadykovsky quarry; it is planned to complete it in early June. Also, the city is implementing a three-year program to eliminate illegal tapping and eliminate leaks in pipes.
“Schedules of restrictions on supply to the city have not been introduced, and it is not planned to do so in the near future,” Zhigulin assured.
Earlier it was reported that in Crimea the reserves of the Simferopol and Zagorsk reservoirs are depleted, and the Balanovskoye reservoir is approaching drying up.
