Common methods will not help the revival of Urmia Lake and more compatible strategies well suited to the current climatic conditions of the region are needed to meet the objective, a deputy at Urmia Lake Research Institute said. 
Speaking to ISNA, Naser A’aq, who also heads the research institute for Artemia and aquaculture, said with the severe water crisis gripping the country, one should not expect the lake to be restored at large dimensions with enormous volumes of water.  
“It is not logical to expect Urmia to return to its original state or even to the level of 1,274 meters given the lack of water and precipitation,” he said.  He noted that all chances for the lake’s full restoration have been lost due to irreversible alternations at its bed.  According to A’aq, the target size has to be around 2,800 square kilometers smaller than its original area.
