Mynai water intake is under threat: will Uzhgorod be left without drinking water?

The repeated appeals about this situation to the agencies, which may affect the course of events, have been unanswered. Uzhgorod deputies ask to influence the situation in order to protect state interests and prevent the irreversible process of loss of the field which will paralyze the life in Uzhgorod. 
In order to prevent the destruction of the Uzh-Latorystya drinking groundwater deposit, which houses the Mynai water intake, which is the main source of water supply in Uzhgorod, today at the session of the Uzhgorod City Council, the deputies supported the appeal to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine in Transcarpathian region, the Ministry of Energy and Environmental Protection, the State Service of Geology and Subsoil of Ukraine, the State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection, the Prosecutor's Office of Transcarpathian region, the Uzhgorod Local Prosecutor's Office, the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration, the Uzhgorod District State Administration. 
The appeal is concerned with the actions of the Korytnyany village council, its executive bodies and officials that threaten with the destruction of the drinking groundwater deposit. Deputies reported about illegal disposal of lands in the sanitary protection zone of the water intake as a result of actions of the Korytnyany village council. In particular, the purpose is being changed - from agricultural land to land for individual housing construction, which contradicts the Subsoil Code of Ukraine and other legislative acts. Further development in drinking groundwater deposit area will lead to the complete destruction of the field and will deprive the population of the state-guaranteed right to quality drinking water, thereby violating the constitutional rights of citizens to a safe environment, the appeal reads.
