Buildings and structures in coastal zone of Lake Sevan below the  level of 1905 meters are illegal: The authorities are ready to  dismantle them

ArmInfo. All 4.800 buildings and  structures in the coastal zone of Lake Sevan, below the level of 1905  meters, with the exception of some pump stations, are illegal.

Minister of Environment of Armenia, Erik Grigoryan, expressed this  opinion in an interview with journalists on July 18 after the  government meeting. According to the minister, the dismantling of  these buildings and structures will require large financial costs.  Today, the agency has calculated the price for the destruction of 1  square meter and passed the estimate to the office of the Prime  Minister. At the same time, as the minister pointed out, the owners  of illegal buildings themselves are obliged to dismantle them at  their own expense. "If not, the state will dismantle it with its own  funds, and then demand compensation through the court," he explained.

On the clarifying question, what decision will be made nevertheless,  Erik Grigoryan said: "All the work that should be implemented on  dismantling, cleaning coastal zones will be implemented." As Erik  Grigoryan assured, the government sees no obstacles to the  dismantling of illegal buildings and is in no way constrained in the  implementation of its decisions.

It should be noted that many experts and opponents of the current  government argue that if the government actually intends to solve the  problem of "bogging" Sevan, then it should dismantle buildings and  structures that were built uncontrollably by the authorities in the  last 20-30 years.
