According to the Russian “official”, at the moment in the conditions of stopping the supply of water from Dnipro through the North-Crimean Canal, water supply to cities and rural settlements of Crimea is carried out from local sources.

All underground waters of the occupied peninsula are used in the centralized drinking water supply system without preliminary cleaning. 

‘Our objective is to determine the most problematic localities, the residents of which use low-quality drinking water to ensure the implementation of measures for the installation of additional water purification,’ Hotsanuik claimed.
