17% of residents in the region complain about the quality of water. 81% are forced to make additional water purification, where: 63% boil water, 18% apply purchased filters and 11% settle water. 

Water supply is not restored in more than 30% of towns. Such towns as Stakhanov in Luhansk region, Donetsk and Komsomolske in Donetsk region are mostly using bottled water. Delivered water from tanker trucks is mostly used in Alchevsk, Novotoshkivske and Pervomaisk in Luhansk region.
