Urmia Lake Reviving Gradually

Urmia Lake has close to 2 billion cubic meters of water covering 1,500 square kilometers, which shows an increase compared to the past nine months when there were about 1.250 bcm of water over less than 1,000 square kilometers, according to official statistics released on the lake’s condition.
The rise in the lake’s water volume and size is because of the last measure implemented by the Urmia Lake Restoration Project, based on which the first phase of the water transfer system from Kanisib Dam to Urmia Lake was launched in March to transfer 300 million cubic meters of water to the troubled lake, ISNA reported.
