Minsk may satisfy own water needs from underground sources by 2020


Dmitry Yanchik, the Head of the Department for Municipal Economy and Energy, of Minsk’s City Executive Committee, emphasises, “I can’t tell you the exact date when Minsk will be completely able to satisfy its water usage from underground sources, as everything depends on planned works and financing. The programme is focused on 2030 but we’ll strive to make it happen as soon as possible. By 2020, all Minsk may be using artesian wells.”

Currently, Minsk has 344 wells and 16 underground water abstractions. Some wells will be re-drilled, with the aim of increasing productivity. Meanwhile, some new wells will appear. According to Mr. Yanchik, from 2015-2016, the increased number of wells will offer Minsk 22,000 cubic metres of water from underground sources.
