The Dnipro River in Kherson has returned to its banks after the flooding caused by the June 6 Kakhovka Dam explosion, the Environment Ministry reported on June 25.

The water level decreased by 4 centimeters, resulting in a total drop of 5.35 meters since the destruction of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Station by Russian forces, located about 60 km upstream from Kherson.

The shallowing of the water continues in the Great Meadow (Velykyi Luh) National Nature Park, which may result in a drought. The protected area consisting of 13 islands in the northeastern part of the Kakhovka Reservoir has been completely drained, the ministry said.

The water level has decreased by approximately 13 meters in the Kamianska Sich National Park, according to the report.
