WASH Cluster Incident Report №86, 06/10/2017

WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT SHELLED AND STOPPED, AS WELL AS NEARBY VILLAGE

 

‘Voda Donbasa’ (VD) has informed the WASH Cluster that Dokuchaievsk Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), which is located near village of Yasne, was shelled yesterday evening (October 5, around 7:30 pm). Power lines, which supply electricity to the station were damaged and the WWTP was de-energized. Staff of the WWTP were evacuated and the WWTP was stopped (both due to lack of staff but also due to lack of electricity).

The Population of Dokuchaievsk is 24,142 people (Pop. data supplied by Voda Donbassa using pre-conflict figures).

At this moment, during the absence of wastewater treatment, when sewage storage tanks are full, wastewater will flow to the environment.

At present, ‘Voda Donbasa’ have not requested specific help. The WASH Cluster is in touch with VD and will inform implementing partners if any actions seem appropriate.
