SIMFEROPOL, February 20. /TASS/. Crimea has announced alert regime as the republic may face water shortage, the republic’s government said on its website on Saturday.
Crimea’s head Sergey Aksenov ordered all emergencies authorities and services to be prepared for the possible water shortage. Specially organized headquarters will solve the task of "providing drinking and technical water to Kerch, Feodosiya (cities) and the Lenin district," the order reads.
In 2014, Ukraine stopped water supplies from the Dnipro River to fill water reservoirs in Crimea.
In late January, Crimea’s water authority reported the republic’s all water reservoirs were full and the stock of water would be sufficient for the heating and the resort seasons. However, the reservoirs, which are filled naturally, are 50-70% full, the authority said.
