Water level in ZNPP cooling pond stable - Energoatom

The water level in the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant’s cooling pond remains stable.

That’s according to NAEC Energoatom’s report delivered via Telegram, Ukrinform saw.

Despite the Russian invaders blowing up the Kakhovka HPP dam, the situation remains stable and under control, the company assured.

As of 08:00 on July 20, the water level in the Zaporizhzhya NPP cooling pond remained unchanged. Currently, it is at 16.4 m.

The water level in the TPP canal, through which the ZNPP pond is fed if necessary, is at 10.93 m.

As noted by Energoatom, the water level in the canal has not dropped significantly recently, adding that its indicators no longer depend on the Kakhovka Reservoir situation.

NAEC recalled that the power units at the ZNPP have been out of operation since September 2022, so there has been no active water evaporation from the cooling pond since then.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, on March 4, 2022, the Russian occupation forces seized the ZNPP.

On June 22, 2023, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced Russia's terror plot targeting the plant.

Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, said that Ukraine was preparing for any scenario for the Zaporizhzhia NPP.

On June 30, Ukraine’s defense intelligence reported that the Russian forces were gradually leaving the ZNPP premises.

Late June, the Mykolaiv, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, and Dnipropetrovsk regions ran large-scale training of emergency services to prepare for the possible consequences of a potential terrorist attack at the ZNPP.

On July 4, the Armed Forces of Ukraine warned about the possible preparation of armed provocations at the ZNPP by Russian invaders.
