Zayandehrud Dam in Isfahan Province currently has 178 million cubic meters of water, which means the dam is only about 13% full, deputy director for protection and exploitation of Isfahan Regional Water Company said.
Despite the low level of water in the dam, “the hydroelectric power plant that is adjacent to the dam has not been shut down yet. However, if the water level decreases by another three meters, the power station will halt operations,” Mahmoud Chitian was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
With a nominal capacity of 1.45 billion cubic meters, Zayandehrud Dam is one of the main dam reservoirs in central Iran.
