The water level in the Kakhovka reservoir after the explosion of hydroelectric power plants decreased by 2.8 meters. It is currently 14.03 meters.
This was reported by the press service of the International Atomic Energy Agency with reference to Director General Rafael Grossi.
At the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, work continues to provide cooling water in reserve. This is necessary in case the nuclear power plant cannot receive water from the Kakhovka reservoir. At the same time, the rate of decline in the water level in the reservoir has slowed, say IAEA experts at the plant.
ZNPP will not be able to receive water from the Kakhovka reservoir when the level drops to 12.7 meters. But near the station there are still cooling ponds, which are constantly replenished. They will last for a few months, experts say. So, there is no nuclear threat now.
Earlier we reported that in Kherson continue to record an increase in water level. The most difficult situation is in the Korabelny district of the city, where more than 1.8 thousand houses were flooded.
