However, the reservoir is extremely important for Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, Zaporizhia. It does have its own cooling water reservoir. But that is fed from the reservoir. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced on Wednesday that the water level in the lake had already fallen by 2.8 meters to 14.03 meters by Wednesday evening. Every hour it sinks another five to seven centimetres. However, the speed slows down a bit. A satellite image from Wednesday now shows how much the water level has already fallen in the lake. If the water drops below 12.70 meters, the power plant can no longer pump water into the cooling water reservoir, which the plant employees are filling up as much as possible.
