Water supply of Lugansk returns to normal

Water supply of Lugansk has returned to normal after two main water pipes were switched back on and repairs of another finished.  

"Petrovskiy and Aidarskiy water intake stations resumed operation. Overhaul repairs of water duct in Artemovskiy district in Lugansk are finished. Lugansk water supply level is back to normal," said LPR water supply public company Luganskvoda South directorate citing its head Konstantin Pol'kin.

Residents of Artemovskiy district have 24-hours-a-day access to water, Zhovtnevyi and Leninskiy districts are supplied twice a day according to the schedule.

"Over the last 24 hours the city received 114 thousand cubic meters, 104 of them from internal sources," Luganskvoda said.

Kiev on October 7th restored water supplies to LPR territory via two main sources - West water treatment plant ZFS-2 and Petrovskiy duct.

In September Kiev shut off two water pipelines delivering water to LPR territory - the first one is pumping water to Lugansk area from Kiev-controlled West water treatment plant in vicinity of Lisichansk, and Petrovskiy duct. LPR was faced with a significant depletion of water supply. LPR Сouncil of ministers declared an emergency in several districts of the Republic on September 27th due to significant water supply deterioration.
