The head of the city of Kurgan, Elena Sitnikova, gathered a meeting to resolve the issue of the upcoming spring floods. Information about this is reported on the official website of the city administration.

“In Kurgan, preparations have begun for the passage of spring waters. The course of the preparatory work was discussed at a meeting of the commission for the prevention of emergency situations and ensuring the fire safety of the city. It was chaired by the head of the city, Elena Sitnikova,” the mayor’s office said on its website.

It is reported that hydrologists will prepare a flood forecast by March 10-15, but everything will depend on the rate of snow melt. As indicated on the website of the City Hall, the Department of Architecture will deal with the boundaries of flooding, the Department of Development of the Municipal Economy controls the dabu (from the CHP microdistrict to Krupskaya Street), and the Department of Housing and Public Utilities will also ensure the work of removing snow from the adjacent territories.

In the event of an emergency, the Department of Social Policy was instructed to organize temporary shelters in school buildings. Employees of the “Transport Department”, as reported on the website, have developed a new route scheme in case of “big water”.
