Crimean bridge already helps solve the water problem of the peninsula

On July 11, 2020, the train with the equipment, materials and specialists necessary for the construction of a temporary Belogorsk-Simferopol water conduit passed through the Crimean bridge from the territory of continental Russia and arrived on the peninsula. Thus, the Crimean bridge is already helping Crimeans solve the water problem.

The head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov took part in the meeting of goods and specialists, who reported the details of what was happening on his page in Vkontakte.

Aksenov noted that the military brought water pipes, through which the Taigan reservoir will be connected to the Simferopol reservoir, from which water flows into the capital of Crimea. About 50 thousand cubic meters of water per day from the Belogorsky district will be sent through this pipeline. This will almost completely meet the needs of the city and its residents.

The head of the region complained that due to adverse weather conditions there was a certain shortage of drinking water in Simferopol. Therefore, he was forced to seek help from Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

Aksenov noted that help came instantly. He thanked the Deputy Minister of Defense, Army General Dmitry Bulgakov, who personally flew to the Crimea and studied the entire pipeline route on the spot.

At the moment, all the necessary tasks are set, all units are provided. I am sure the work will be completed as soon as possible.

- summed up Aksenov.

The Ministry of Defense specified that the length of the pipeline will exceed 60 km. Construction is carried out by MTO units of the Southern and Western military districts. More than 300 military and almost 150 units of diverse equipment.

    From the fact that water will be transferred from one place to another, it will no longer be. That is, it will become more in one, but less in the other. This in no way can be a solution to the issue, it is rather an emergency patch of holes. The solution can only be desalination, otherwise Crimea will return to the 50s of the last century, that is, when the canal was not there. Only the situation will be much worse, since today there are much more consumers, and artesian water was not pumped in such volumes, and at the current rate, salinization of groundwater and soil is only a matter of time, and not for long. For 6 years, it was quite possible to build enough generating capacities, to buy technologies for building large desalination plants, and now we would have forgotten about this problem.

      Do not seem smarter than others. Weather conditions created a strain, took the necessary measures in the Crimea. Further, everything will develop according to the milestones. It is advisable to open the Dnieper Canal, because this is already a humanitarian catastrophe for the citizens of Crimea with everyone expiring (I suppose, Israel would have bombed the dam on the third day) .. then we will live, we will see ...

        Yes, it doesn’t seem to me, it’s been said everywhere for 6 years that everything is in order, there are no special problems with water in Crimea, and suddenly it turns out that there are still very big problems, and “temporary difficulties” are nothing more than complacency. What I wrote is an objective reality. It is impossible to deceive geology, if water is so pumped up, it will not be enough for a long time, salt water will go. Yes, and it would be interesting to know what they are, these “milestones”, what are they?

          They spoke correctly 6 years ago, the last 4-5 years in the winter were stable rainfall and the water supply created in the winter-spring period was enough. 19-20 winter years, there was little rainfall and the water supply did not work out in full.

            Until the mid-50s, Crimea was very ill with water; there was a chronic shortage even before the development of agriculture and industry. That's why they built the CCM. And they started pumping water with all their strength right after the CCM shutdown, not really knowing how this could end .. It’s just that the current drought made the situation even worse.

              Desalinate when there are no other options, but in the Crimea they are, take an interest.

    He will understand the source of the Dnieper River in his native harbor again!
    Water flows from the Kuban River where the Bolsheviks order!

    Is it possible to transfer the waters of the Kuban River to the Crimea through a water conduit?
    The Dnieper is now merging with Kiev into the Black Sea, and already before Odessa, the Liman waters there turned green, this could lead to an environmental disaster.
