Invaders damage pumping station that had to supply water to Mykolaiv

Russian troops have damaged a pumping station of the Mykolaivvodokanal water supply company in the Kherson region, so the water supply to Mykolaiv will not be restored quickly.

Mykolaiv Mayor Oleksandr Sienkevych said this in a post on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

"During a missile attack, Russian terrorists damaged a pumping station of MKP Mykolaivvodokanal, located in the Kherson region. Therefore, for an indefinite period of time, we are forced to supply technical water to the city from the Bug estuary," Sienkevych wrote.

He also noted that everyone was waiting for the de-occupation of Kherson and other temporarily captured lands. After that, promptly, literally in a week, the water supply was repaired. "But we are dealing with real terrorists who are powerless against our military, and therefore they fight with the civilian population," he said.

According to the mayor, the city continues to repair networks damaged by salt water: "As soon as the security situation allows, we will promptly restore the pumping station and return drinking water to Mykolaiv."

On April 12, the Russians blew up the Dnipro-Mykolaiv water pipeline, and the city was left without centralized water supply. A month later, the supply was restored, but already with technical water from the Southern Bug. Therefore, the water supply network in Mykolaiv needs urgent replacement, because salt water is destroying the entire system.
