Preparatory work has begun in the Dnipropetrovsk region for the construction of main water pipelines to supply water to cities and districts in several regions affected by the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station.

In particular, the project envisages the construction of the Karachun Reservoir - Kryvyi Rih - Pivdennyi Reservoir, Marhanets-Nikopol, Khortytsia (Dnipro waterworks-2) - Tomakivka main water pipelines. The water supply system will consist of three main water supply lines with a length of almost 150 kilometers.

This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister/Minister of Community Development, Territories, and Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov, the CFTS portal reports.

"The water pipeline will literally be laid from scratch, with international partners involved in the purchase and logistics of pipes of the required diameter and high-capacity pumps. We are setting ourselves the ambitious goal of completing the work as soon as possible," Kubrakov said.

As reported previously, the Ministry of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure initiated the allocation of UAH 1.5 billion for the construction of main water pipelines for the regions affected by water shortages following the blowing up of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant.

The project should provide water to at least 1 million people in the Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, Mykolaiv, and Kherson regions.
