Snow cover in the mountain basins has declined by a massive 69% compared to last year, a report issued by the Iran Water Management Company shows.
“Snow has covered almost 91,000 kilometers in Iran,” IRNA quoted Qasem Taqizadeh Khamesi, director of the National Water and Wastewater Engineering Company of Iran (Abfa) as saying Monday. 
When the snow melts, it will produce an estimated 500 million cubic meters of water, a large part of which is expected to be collected in dams, including those near the capital, Tehran.
“Snow covered nearly 154,000 kilometers in 2019,” he recalled.
