Part of Bilohirsk Reservoir dries up in occupied Crimea - media
In the temporarily occupied Crimea, the southern part of the Bilohirsk Reservoir has completely dried up, even though the occupation authorities have stopped discharging water from the reservoir
Residents of the Karasivka village told about it, Krym.Realii reports.
It is noted that the drought indicates the beginning of a water crisis in Crimea.
"There is less water flowing into the Bilohirsk Reservoir, and its quality has become much worse. And not only the drought is the reason for this," the residents say.
According to them, the point is that a trout farm is being developed below the Karasu-Bashi spring, with all the consequences that flow into the Biyuk-Karasu River, both literally and figuratively.
It is known that the middle part of the Bilohirsk Reservoir is so shallow that algae can be seen peeking out of the water.
In 2020, the Bilohirsk reservoir was already drying up. Back then, the Biyuk-Karasu River turned into a stream.
