Sea water desalination plant will be built in the Crimea
During the meeting in Simferopol the prime minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev suggested building a sea water desalination plant in the Crimea.
Medvedev noted that the water supply is one of the key problems of the region, since the peninsula depends on the external source - North-Crimean channel, the wear of which amounts to 80 percent as of today (the channel was built in 1960-1970).
"The problem can also be resolved by building an aqueduct from the territory of Kuban and creating reservoirs at Tamansky peninsula," clarified Medvedev.
"The government will consider all the options and choose the optimal one," concluded the premier.
