Prime Minister: It is likely that the release of water from Lake  Sevan will not exceed the threshold of 170 cubic meters established  by law 

ArmInfo.As of August 12 of this year, compared with the same period last year, 51 million cubic meters less water were taken from Lake Sevan, Prime Minister of  Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced this on his Facebook page.

"As of August 12, the volume of water discharged from Sevan is 93  million cubic meters instead of last year's 144 cubic meters. This  means that there is a high probability that water withdrawal from  Sevan will not exceed 170 cubic meters established by law, "Pashinyan  wrote.

According to the Prime Minister, the reason for this situation is  more or less favorable weather and the application of emergency  measures in the field of water management.

To recall, on June 6, the government decided that in 2019 water  releases from Lake Sevan will not exceed 170 million cubic meters.  According to the Minister of Territorial Administration and  Infrastructures of the Republic of Armenia Suren Papikyan, the need  for water intake from Lake Sevan is due to the need to irrigate 32  thousand hectares of agricultural land in the Armavir, Ararat, Kotayk  and Aragatsotn regions of the republic. The reservoirs of the  republic, as the minister noted, are full, but they are out of the  reach of the above areas. The Office will do everything in its power  to exclude additional water withdrawals.  RA Prime Minister Nikol  Pashinyan noted that 170 million cubic meters fit into the volumes  stipulated by the current legislation of the country. Nevertheless,  as the head of government emphasized, it is necessary to use the  lake's waters as efficiently as possible to prevent additional  releases, even despite the expected heat.
