Boukan Dam to Feed Urmia Lake

Water from Boukan Dam will soon feed the ailing Urmia Lake with 70 million cubic meters of water per second, an official at the West Azarbaijan Regional Water Authority said.
According to Kioumars Daneshjou, the head of the authority, the release is the second measure to be taken after the reservoir of Shahrchai Dam was opened toward the lake last week, IRNA reported.
"The plan is in line with Urmia Lake's revival scheme and will be implemented on the order of Iran Water Resources Management Company to replenish a small part of the troubled body of water," he said.
