Alagol Wetland Well-Fed

The long embattled Alagol international wetland in Golestan Province has been flooded thanks to the recent springtime precipitations and the dredging of upstream areas.
"Dredging the canal by the side of Daneshmand Dam allowed the surface flooding waters to flow into the wetland before being stored in the reservoir," Amir Abdous, head of the provincial Department of Environment said. According to the official, the wetland was last fed in the summer of 2016 and stream toward the water body was gradually blocked with sediments, mud and silt.
"No surface water had emptied into it ever since," Zist Online quoted him as saying.
