Adequate water sources lead Yekaterinburg to shut Nyazepetrovsky intake

Officials in Yekaterinburg have decided to disable the Nyazepetrovsky cascade after determining that enough potable water has been accumulated through other natural sources for use in 2014.

The Nyazepetrovsky cascade was closed at the end of December when technicians shut off the three pumps used to draw water from the Chelyabinsk region. Traditionally, water to the Nyazepetrovsky cascade is drawn from the river basin in Ufa Chusovaya, Ekburg.ru reports.

City works experts forecast that enough water will reach the city from the nearby Volchihinskoe and Upper Makarovsky reservoirs, even during the cold winter months of the first quarter of the year.
