Update as of July 5

According to the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center, the water level at the Kherson post as of 8:00 a.m. on June 5 is 0.10 m BS.

The Dnipro within the Kakhovka Reservoir has returned to its old channel.

After the hydroelectric power plant was blown up, Ukraine lost about 14.4 cubic kilometres of water, 35% of the annual flow rate of the Dnipro River. Before the attack, the volume of the Kakhovka reservoir was about 20 cubic kilometres. As of today, the reservoir's remaining capacity is 5.5 cubic kilometres. The water level in the Dnipro riverbed near the station is currently less than 2 meters.

Ukrhydroenergo continues to implement the priority measures that are critically needed to restore the Kakhovka Hydropower Complex. In particular, negotiations are ongoing with the World Bank, the EBRD, and EIB to construct temporary water retention dams in the upper and lower sections of the Kakhovka reservoir. These dams will enable the reservoir to accumulate water levels up to 12.7 meters above sea level (BS) and restore water supply in the region. Also, negotiations are taking place to restore HPPs and PSPs affected by russian shelling.
