The type of water of the Zhuravychiv source of mineral waters is hydro-carbonate-calcium radon with mineralization of 2.5 g / l, flow rate 240.0 cubic meters / day. The value of Zhuravychivsky spring is extraordinary, the healing properties provide a healing effect of 98%. The reserves of the Zhuravychivsky mud deposit amount to 217 thousand cubic meters. Located in the village of Zhuravichi. In 1928-1939, 1987-1999, the balneological sanatorium "Zhuravka" operated here. Sodium chloride water with high mineralization - 12-13 mg / l is distributed near the village of Zhuravichi, Kivertsiv district. These waters contain impurities of bromine, iodine, radon and are used to treat the cardiovascular system, atherosclerosis, respiratory and digestive systems.
