As far as the water storage reservoirs have become shallow and due to the carelessness of the occupying authorities, the Crimean population feel the problems with water supply are getting more and more formidable. Thus, a lot of peninsula regions have shifted to the hourly schedule of bulk water transport since August 24th. At the same time, such restrictions did not affect business, and the occupying authority completely suggested the reduction of water consumption per one housing sector.
After that, Alushta shifted to the bulk water transport schedule since September 23rd. So far the region has managed to get along with such limitations as the reduction of the pressure in the networks during night hours. There is a prospect of shifting to 10 cubic metre-barrels. Simferopol uses them.
At the same time, for the dwellers of 45 high blocks, water is supplied to the 5th floor, not higher. The local authorities decided to assemble the accumulative tanks in the basements of such houses rather than productively tackling such a problem, to make the water supply to the higher storeys easier.
Meanwhile, the microdistricts Kovylnaya and Bella Kuna were deprived of water on the weekend because of the accident, which happened to the header tube. They had to bring water in highway tank trucks to the dialysis centre Krym, which receives all the patients suffering from kidney failure.
It keeps getting worse. For several days, the pipe arrangement was rinsed in Donskaya and Obschestvennaya Streets because sewage runoffs got into the conduits.
The villages, which are the nearest ones to Simferopol and in which the central water supply engineering is connected to the capital city pipelines, have also been left without water. As far as the pressure in the water supply network is low, water just cannot reach the suburbs and the so-called regional administration decided to install the tanks.
The skilful utilities folks had other problems related with the tanks because their calculations did not meet the standards of the real consumption. Despite using the tanks for one month, they did not mange to calculate a necessary water volume. In some places water starts to be covered in algae and is getting worse. Somewhere the barrel is emptied in several hours after the delivery. So, we have to wait for the calls from the house dwellers to the emergency services.
Even in such trifles as regularly flushing the barrels to get rid of the settled sludge, the carelessness and irresponsibility of the occupants are demonstrated.
