ArmInfo.The Armenian government at an extraordinary meeting on September 30 approved a program of measures for 2020 to restore, preserve, reproduce, naturally develop and use the ecosystems of Lake Sevan.
As the press service of the Government of the Republic of Armenia reports, the program is aimed at improving the current state of the lake and its catchment. It is planned to preserve the ecosystems of Lake Sevan and its catchment basin, restore the ecological balance of the lake and ensure sustainable development of Lake Sevan.
According to the justification, as of August 12, the level of Lake Sevan was 1900.72 m, which was caused by problems associated with the cleaning of coastal wetlands. Numerous structures and infrastructures also lead to serious problems. At the same time, in order to ensure high quality of water, it is important to radically improve the condition of the lake, which is deteriorating due to the influx of a large amount of untreated sewage entering the lake. The program provides for 16 events.
