Izobilnytske reservoir that supplies water to Alushta and surrounding areas is half-filled, while Verkhniokutuzivske reservoir is almost empty.
Aianske reservoir, supplying water to Simferopol and several villages in the Salhirska valley, is almost empty.
River flowing out of Aianske reservoir has almost dried out
Simferopol reservoir, supplying the Crimean capital, is the only one where the situation is under control, according to Psariov.
However, the banks of the reservoir, which are supposed to be a sanitary zone, are heavily littered.
Bilohirske and Taihanske reservoirs have got shallow as well.
Mykhailo Romashchenko, the director of Ukraine's Institute of Water Problems and Land Reclamation, claims Crimea's own water resources are enough to meet the needs of 1 million people only - less than half the population of the peninsula.
