The Information About the Balneological Resources of Kherson Oblast

The KhersonOblast is rich for its balneologicalresources – over 70 water sources of medicinal and thermal spas, peloids and brine of saline lakes were explored. They are prospective for using and creation of the system of balneological centers, development of wellness tourism. It is confirmed in the conclusion of the Ukrainian Research Institute of Medical Rehabilitation and Balneology of Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

SI «The Ukrainian Research Institute of Medical Rehabilitation and Balneology of Ministry of Health of Ukraine» assessed the predictive assessment of the quality of groundwater in the southern areas of Kherson Oblast (the urban-type settlement of Lazurne of SkadovskRaion, the village of Obloi of Hola Prystan Raion, the village of Olexandrivka, the urban-type settlement of Syvaske of Novotroitskiy Raion, the village of Ozeriany, the village of Strilkove, the village of Novodmytrivka of Henichesk Raion).

The research-and-development activities of SI «The Ukrainian Research Institute of Medical Rehabilitation and Balneology oh Ministry of Health of Ukraine» allowed to analyze the library material of the previous years, measure the exploration level of nature therapeutic resources, get the predictive assessment of the groundwater from 6 wellholes, specify the modern and prospective usage of them, create the record of mineral groundwater.

Nature therapeutic resources are divided into groups:

  • mineral water
  • peloids
  • brine

The last year of investigation was shown, also the basic hydrologic and physicochemical measures, salinity level and chemical formula of water. The presence of biologically active constituents and species is specified, because it can determine the therapeutic action of the objects. In the prospective of the usage, all the nature therapeutic resources were divided on the resources that are recommended for the purpose of:

  • manufacturing prepacking
  • manufacturing packaging and treatment for internal use
  • balneotherapy

The results of the investigation are illustrated in the map «The occurrence of the mineral groundwater and benthal deposits in the southern areas of Kherson oblast».

Thus, Kherson Oblast has well recreational potential and have a prospective for creation of the resorts of city and national significance as well. The important condition for it is the medicobiological characterization of nature therapeutic resources.

Nowadays there is an objective necessity in surveying the culturological work of prospective, especially, coastal territories of Kherson Oblast to revise the characterization of current situation of nature therapeutic resources and development of the recommendations in usage in treatment practice.
