As reported by Krym.Realii, the reservoir looks more like a pond rather than once large water area of 13,800 cubic meters, Censor.NET reports.
Taihanske reservoir is located in the Bilohirsk region of Crimea and is separated from Bilohirske reservoir with a narrow isthmus. Previously, the water level in Bilohirske reservoir fell far below the base of the dam for the first time in many years.
Bilohirske and Taihanske reservoirs are replenished by Crimea's largest spring - Karasu-Bashi - fed by the karst waters of the vast plateau Karabi-Yaila. The water from these reservoirs is actively used to fill the North Crimean Canal. In 2014, water pumping from Bilohirske and Taihanske reservoir to the North Crimean Canal was arranged, which provided Feodosia, Kerch, and Sudak with water.
Ukraine satisfied 85 percent of Crimea's needs in fresh water through the North Crimean Canal connecting the main channel of the Dnieper with the peninsula.
