The cost of solving the problem of water shortage in Crimea is named

The Russian government is allocating about 50 billion rubles to solve the water problem of the Crimean Peninsula as part of a comprehensive plan to ensure a reliable water supply to this territory.

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin believes that the daily supply of about 310 thousand cubic meters of water will fully meet the needs of the inhabitants of the Russian peninsula. According to Mishustin, the plan provides for 14 initiatives to implement a reliable water supply to Crimea, including the repair of existing water delivery means, the development of new water sources, the construction of drainage systems, hydraulic installations and other water supply facilities.

Earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers of Russia allocated 5 billion rubles for work to supply Crimea with water. According to a number of sources, the Russian Defense Ministry will receive a significant portion of these funds. These funds will be used to build infrastructure for transporting water from the Kadykovsky quarry, as well as to work on water intake on the Belbek River with the construction of treatment and engineering facilities.

Before the Crimean Spring, 85 percent of the water supply to the peninsula was provided by the North Crimean Canal. After 2014, the situation with the delivery of water to the Crimeans worsened sharply, this year the situation was aggravated by a severe drought - by the beginning of the summer season, the filling level of the Crimean reservoirs was half as much as in 2019.

    This will not solve the problem, except that it will slightly reduce the severity. And in Ukraine it was not so good with water, and without a channel it cannot be fundamentally solved in any way, except for desalination. Moreover, it is not at all necessary to have an atomic source of generation for this. do not build nuclear power plants, but today the country is completely supplied with fresh water and practically does not depend on external sources. If we also take into account the super-intensive pumping of groundwater, then their replacement by sea water and soil salinization is a matter of a very near future. This is already happening now.

    I do not know why, but our authorities stubbornly ignore the experience of Israel and other countries in the water issue. The level of education and conscience in this matter are of great importance. In Israel, seawater desalination plants are not nuclear powered!

    ... annually determine the price per cubic meter of water that consumers will have to pay. It is currently 4 cents per cubic meter. Reduced water tariffs exist for the poor, as well as farmers growing vegetables and fruits.

    I pay for the cube. -25,16 drainage and 18,24 drainage !!! The more they write about the problems in Russia, the more you become convinced of the mediocrity and corruption of Putin's government.

      Well, on gas. Does it make it easier?
      If oil was extracted in the Crimea, then desalination plants could be made on associated gas. Or slop oil, which is in half with water. But alas. It is stupid to pull gas from Siberia for a desalination plant.
      And a very small reactor is needed. An RBK-600 was in Shevchenko. Now there are RBK-800 reactors. Two reactors are enough for the whole Crimea.

    Pour from empty to empty. The construction of power plants is necessary, since desalination is a very energy-intensive technology.

    This is a tribute to the local elites, among whom they "forgot" to denazify in 2014.

    Workaround cost.

    Does anyone know how the issue of water supply in Shevchenko is being solved now?
