In the city of Makarov on Sakhalin, the water supply was restored after the mudflows. Mud flows from heavy rainfall flooded the city reservoir on 11 September.

According to the press service of the Sakhalin Oblast government, water began to flow into the houses of local residents. However, this water cannot yet be consumed without heat treatment. Until the results of the analyzes are obtained, the water is considered technical.

As the Minister of Housing and Communal Services of the region Natalia Kuprina said, in order to reduce turbidity and disinfection, the water began to be chlorinated, a coagulant was added. Until the full normalization of the water supply in Makarov, they will continue to distribute drinking water from tank trucks to local residents.

In the Makarovsky region of Sakhalin last weekend introduced an emergency mode due to mudflows as a result of heavy rainfall. The railway tracks, the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk-Okha highway, as well as the city reservoir were damaged.
