The head of the State Unitary Enterprise “Water of Crimea” Vladimir Bazhenov on the air of the TV channel Crimea 24 said that from Monday, August 24, in the Simferopol and Bakhchisaray districts, water supply will be limited in three stages due to drought.

“On Monday, we will turn off hot water and reduce consumption of cold water. From August 31, we have almost the entire city on the schedule. From September 7 – the third stage. The supply schedule is reduced, where it was 4 (hours a day water is supplied) – it will become 3 or 2. Where there will be two-time – it will move once”,- said Bazhenov.

In addition, Bazhenov stressed that the planned filling of the Simferopol reservoir is 36 million cubic meters of water, and now there are 7 million.

“If nothing is done and it does not rain, then the water can run out very quickly”,- he stressed.
