The water supply to 10 settlements in the Municipality of Dimitrovgrad has been restored from today, 11 o'clock. This was announced by the Minister of Health Prof. Kostadin Angelov. The results of water pollution have been taken from three water intakes which provide water to the settlements in Dimitrovgrad Municipality on the left bank of the Maritsa River - the villages of Brod, Zlato Pole and Raynovo. In the village of Zlato Pole he was on site together with the Minister of Environment and Water Emil Dimitrov, the mayor of Dimitrovgrad Ivo Dimov and the regional governor of Haskovo Dr. Stefka Zdravkova. The use of water is recommended only for domestic purposes. Drinking water will be allowed only after negative control samples.Until then, it is recommended to the population not to use it for drinking and cooking.

3260 inhabitants were affected by the lack of water caused by the preventive shutdown of water supply to the settlements in the municipality on the left bank of the Maritsa River. For almost two days the villages of Brod, Zlato Pole, Raynovo, Dolno Belevo, Golyamo Asenovo, Malko Asenovo, Stransko, Dlagnevo, Zdravets and Bryast were left without water due to pollution of the river waters in the area of a collector near to a production plant. The measure was imposed preventively by the Regional Crisis Headquarters and all water abstractions from the Maritsa River basin from Dimitrovgrad to Svilengrad were stopped in order to protect the population.

Only in the village of Radievo, the water supply was not stopped due to supply from its own water source.
