According to the information of Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology Sergei Donskoy, water supplies to North Crimean Canal were resumed on May 12.

“It has become possible thanks to high speed of infrastructure construction necessary to connect the river and canal. It was started in late April and was completed in very early May. The total cost of the work amounted to 5.5 million rubles,” Donskoy said.

Water comes to North Crimean Canal along Biyuk-Karasu River from the Tayganske and Bilgorodske reservoirs, which are in the river bed, the minister said.

The Tayganskoye reservoir has accumulated around 30 million cubic meters of water, which could be used to supply the eastern regions of Crimea, which had received Dnipro water from North Crimean Canal, Crimean First Deputy Prime minister Rustam Temirgaliyev has said.


According to the information of the public council under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology, preparatory works are currently being held at the Feodosivske reservoir, to which water from North Crimean Canal will come, and water supplies from the canal to reservoir will begin on May 23.

At the same time, work to transfer Salgir River, the largest one on the peninsula, to North Crimean Canal continues in Crimea.
