For 115 days, specialists of the Military Construction Complex of the Russian Ministry of Defense have created a unique hydraulic engineering complex in Crimea to provide water to the residents of Sevastopol.

The water intake was built in the lower reaches of the Belbek River, 8 km before the river flows into the Black Sea.

The specialists of the Military Construction Complex strengthened the channel, built an overflow dam, a bucket intake, pumping stations of the first and second lifts, treatment facilities, a recirculation building, storage tanks, an administrative building and autonomous engineering facilities for the treatment of domestic and surface wastewater.

River water from Belbek, along a well-equipped channel, through gates that regulate the flow rate, enters the overflow dam and then into the accumulation bucket. Having passed the fish protection system, the water goes to the pumping station of the first lift and is pumped to the treatment plant. In sedimentation tanks with thin-layer modules, large particles are deposited, then the post-treatment process takes place on fast filters. In order to save water resources, the water with which the filters are washed is re-purified at the wash water treatment plant and returned back.

Clean water is collected in reservoirs. From them, it enters the pumping station of the second rise and from there, through the laid pipeline, it enters the city hydroelectric complex.

The management of all hydraulic engineering processes is automated and is carried out from the dispatching console. The complex is fenced along the perimeter and equipped with technical security equipment.

The new hydraulic structure is fully operational.

The complex includes a storage pool with a capacity of 150 thousand cubic meters, an accumulation pool, a dam, a hose for delivering water to the Dnieper water pipeline, three pumping stations, as well as a complex of water supply and local treatment facilities, including equipment for the treatment of rinsing water, storm and domestic wastewater from accumulating underground reservoirs.

Taking into account the productivity of the new water intake, about 65 thousand cubic meters of water per day will be delivered to Sevastopol.

More than 740 people and 280 pieces of equipment were involved in the construction. The work was carried out in three shifts, monitoring of their implementation was carried out around the clock by the National Center for Defense Management of the Russian Federation.

During the first stage, military builders on December 19 of last year commissioned the first fully automated water pipeline from the Kadykovsky quarry ahead of schedule, allowing 15 thousand cubic meters of water to be delivered to Sevastopol every day.

In just 68 days, taking into account the difficult landscape, more than 10 km of pipes were laid, a unique floating pumping station with six high-performance domestic pumps was built.
