Dnipro water starts flowing into North Crimean Canal after 8-year pause
SIMFEROPOL. March 4 (Interfax) - A video released by the Krym 24 television channel and photos posted on social networks show that water has appeared in the North Crimean Canal that goes through Armyansk in the north of the Crimean Peninsula.
"The water is flowing on its own, now that the dam has been blown up. Pumps are not functioning," advisor to the Crimean head Oleg Kryuchkov told Interfax.
Water samples are being taken, and a lot of work needs to be done in Ukrainian territory before the Canal commences operation, the Crimean State Committee for Waterworks and Melioration said.
