Ukraine provided up to 85% of needs of the Crimea for fresh water through the North Crimean Canal going from Dnieper. This water was used for watering about 140 thousand hectares of farmlands. After reunion of the Crimea with Russia water supply on the channel to the republic was completely stopped. The most great difficulties have arisen at landowners in the north of the Crimea with which it was necessary to pass to cultivation of less moisture capacious cultures and also in east part of the peninsula. Partially the problem managed to be solved after transfer of water from the Biyuk-Karasu River to the North Crimean Canal and drillings of new artesian wells.
