Donetsk water treatment plant poised to resume operation

Donetsk, Mar 2 – DAN.
Donetsk water treatment plant (DFS) might resume operation shortly, a source at the state-owned Voda Donbassa water-supply company told Donetsk News Agency.

“We hope it will be put back in operation within a day,” the employee said, adding that part of DFS personnel are on standby already.

DFS came under a massive Ukrainian forces strike on 24 February night. DFS structures received eight hits, including chlorine storage, a chlorine pipe, water reservoirs and the bomb shelter. DFS administration decided to stop DFS operation and evacuate the personnel. According to DPR Operations Command, DFS was shelled with heavy artillery from Avdeyevka direction.

DPR repeatedly insisted on urgent measures to put DFS back in operation. At the Contact Group meeting in Minsk on Wednesday, the parties reached several accords to resolve the DFS crisis.*jk
