Water abstraction is stopped for purposes other than drinking and domestic ones, for Dyakovo, Asenovets and Yastrebino dams. The MOEW informed the WSS operators, water users and the operating companies managing these dams to restrict the use for other purposes in order to secure the drinking water supply. They are advised to take measures for alternative water supply from other water sources in order to ensure the drinking and domestic water supply in the respective settlements.
