The State Emergencies Service crews managed to restore 500 houses in Avdiivka, Donetsk region, previously destroyed in artillery attacks. The press office of the authority reported this on Friday.
'Specifically, on July 4, the crews conducted maintenance works in private residential buildings on three streets across the town. They set 81 asbestos-cement boards, 12 meters of lineal board, eight meters of lineal bars and 50 square meters of roofing felt', the message says.
Last month, the State Emergencies Service crews restored the damaged communications of Donetsk filtering station and saw to it that the water supplies resume. “The electric power supply of Donetsk filtering station was restored on June 9. As at 18:00 on June 9 Donetsk filtering station was put into operation, the water supply was restored after conducting routine adjustment work. On June 10 as at 7:00 am the water supply of Avdiivka, Lastochkyne and Orlivka operate as normal,” the message says.
Earlier, on June 9, a state of emergency was declared in Avdiivka due to the hold-up of the Donetsk filtering station.
It should be noted that the station is occasionally under the militants’ fire. A few days earlier, it was left without power because of the battle actions.
