The authorities are considering alternative options for filling the North Crimean Canal

The authorities of the Russian peninsula are considering alternative options for filling the North Crimean Canal with water after the destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. This was stated by the head of the Crimea Sergey Aksyonov. According to him, the main problem now is security.

The possibility of supplying water to the North Crimean Canal remains quite simple. As soon as the safety issue is resolved, the installation of pumps on the Dnieper River and the supply of up to 40 cubic meters per second of water to the canal will allow us to ensure full land reclamation on the territory of the republic

Sergey Aksenov said.

At the same time, he noted technical ease of implementation of this option. According to him, while the water level in the North Crimean Canal on the territory of Crimea has not fallen, but over time it will inevitably become shallow.

The authorities of the region are taking measures to reduce losses and accumulation of water in reservoirs

Aksenov emphasized.

Recall that on the night of June 6, as a result of an explosion by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station collapsed. As a result, dozens of settlements in the Kherson region were flooded.

Experts have already called the incident an environmental disaster, which could result in an outbreak of dangerous diseases not only in the coastal regions of Ukraine, but also in Bulgaria, as well as in Romania.

Moscow placed the responsibility for the destruction of the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station entirely on the Kiev regime.

    installation of pumps on the Dnieper River and supply of up to 40 cubic meters per second of water

    Such water will become golden because of the bills for the voltage .. Who will pay for the banquet?
    Moreover, that:
    1. the construction of such pumping stations is not a matter of two days/weeks/months;
    2. This object will become another tasty morsel for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, especially in such a dangerous proximity to the territories controlled by Kyiv.
    One more thing is not clear. For 8 years, Crimea felt quite comfortable without the North Crimean Canal. Yes, there was not enough water for irrigation, but there was a sufficient amount for domestic and technical needs. And this information is not rumored and not from propaganda rites, but from the workers of one of the water utilities in the steppe Crimea (which, by the way, used to be called the Hungry Steppe). Underground waters in the Crimea shaft. Only there (this is from the memories of childhood and youth) I saw artesian wells, from which water escapes for years from a 300mm pipe in a fountain to a height of 3 ... 4m, and is not pumped out of the ground by a pump, as in most other territories. Yes, this water is of little use for domestic needs, but it is quite suitable for irrigation and technical needs. In addition, purification and desalination technologies have stepped far ahead - the Middle East and the Saudis will not let you lie. Hence the conclusion - water conduits for supplying drinking water through Kerch can be increased, but agriculture, animal husbandry, energy and industry should be transferred to the production of low-cost products in terms of water (which was what Crimea was doing before, and not all sorts of nonsense, such as rice growing), but also introduce new progressive methods of irrigation.

    Why are the railway bridges and tunnels of the Armed Forces of Ukraine not being put out of action? Enough agreements and deals at the expense of the blood of a Russian soldier? When will the national traitors - Medinsky, Slutsky and representatives of the Ministry of Defense, who betrayed Russia in Istanbul, bear at least political responsibility and lose their posts, as well as Shoigu, who signed the "grain deal" that caused enormous damage to the country. It was Shoigu who was directly responsible for the defeat of our troops near Kharkov, and he personally gave the order to leave Kherson, leaving thousands of Russians who had taken Russian citizenship to be torn to pieces. When will he be kicked out?
