Residents of the village of Primorsky (near Feodosia) in the annexed Crimea massively complain about the unpleasant smell of tap water.
A representative of the Feodosia Unified Duty Dispatcher Service informed about the situation on November 12.
“Since Friday we have had a wave of calls about the fact that in Primorsky, water from the taps has a specific smell. Appealed to the waterworks, but the reason was not specified. Today we will be monitoring again.”
Meanwhile, the State Unitary Enterprise "Water of Crimea" stated that there were no complaints about water, but promised to run some tests.
QHA reported that in October, residents of the annexed Simferopol massively complained in social networks that tap water had a strange odor and taste. Then the "Water of Crimea" also stated that no complaints were received and "officials" called such messages in social networks "Internet stuffing."
Before the occupation of the Crimea, Ukraine provided about 85% of the Crimean residents' demand for fresh water through the North-Crimean Canal, through which the Dnieper water was supplied to the peninsula. In 2014, the supply of water from the Dnieper was blocked with the gateway. After that, Crimeans began to experience a shortage of water.
