In annexed Simferopol, a schedule for restricting water supply due to its shortage in the city’s reservoirs was introduced. Interfax reports, with reference to the head of the city administration Sergei Titarenko.
Cold water will be supplied to the houses of residents from 6:00 to 10:00 and from 18:00 to 22:00, hot water – only on weekends. He explained that such measures are introduced for an indefinite period and are designed for “the worst development of the situation – without rain and snow.” Restrictions will come into effect on February 10.
As the administration explained, the city has three reservoirs, but there is not enough water in them. The reserves in them will be enough for 90-100 days. This is due to the lack of precipitation, the water level is two times lower than a year ago.
As we reported, On March 1, several settlements in Crimea were left without electricity due to bad weather conditions and accidents.
