HORLIVKA CENTRAL SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT AND SEWAGE PUMPING STATION SHELLED

The WASH Cluster was informed that there was shelling, very close to the central sewage treatment plant and sewage pumping station, in Horlivka, on Monday, April 19th, started at 05:00 am and finished at 07:00 am.

As well as endangering the lives of 10 utility workers, at those facilities, there are environmental risks from this shelling: sewage from Horlivka (population around 300,000) flows through the two pumping stations, and any damage could have caused sewage spillage on the streets of Horlivka, also affecting water quality in the river flowing downstream towards Bakhmut city.

The WASH Cluster is in touch with Voda Donbasa to monitor these two locations.
