SIMFEROPOL, February 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The Yevpatoria city authorities announced a state of emergency for four days over absence of drinking water in the city with almost 150,000 residents. The problem resulted from multiple ruptured water mains.

Eleven water trucks carry non-potable water around the city, the administration said. Boilers were shut down at the first city hospital due to the absence of water, and there was no heating for one day. Heating supply is restored now.

People stand in line to water trucks around the city, and bottled water is rapidly sold out at shops. The city administration ordered shop owners not to raise prices on bottled water.

The Chebotarskoye-Yevpatoria water mains ruptured on February 25. In all, there are more than 20 holes in water pipes on the length of five kilometers. The accident resulted from a hydraulic impact on water mains in a rapid growth of air temperatures. It will cost about 30 million hryvni ($4.5 million) to repair the damage.

The repairs continue round-the-clock. Four holes had been closed as of 7:00 a.m. The repairs will be complete before March 2.
