Mining and metallurgical group Metinvest reports controlled conditions at its enterprises in Kryvyi Rih following the sabotage of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant dam by occupying forces.
This is stated in the company's announcement.
It is noted that water usage restrictions are being introduced in Kryvyi Rih.
"70% of Kryvyi Rih's water supply comes from the Kakhovka reservoir. Therefore, the city's water situation is complex, but under control," said Oleksandr Vilkul, Head of the City Defence Council.
"Currently, it is necessary to reduce consumption by 30% in areas supplied by Kakhovka. Therefore, water saving mode is being introduced: 1. Industrial enterprises need to minimise water consumption as much as possible. 2. For the population, water pressure will be reduced from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. 3. Hose watering is completely prohibited. 4. In villages from Inhulets through Sofiivka, water supply will be only from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. If these measures are insufficient – additional restrictions will be introduced!" says the authority's message.
Meanwhile, it is noted that "the situation at the MetinvestKryvyiRih enterprises is under control".
"We hold on. Together to victory!" the company's information concluded.
