The Urmia Lake Restoration Project is two years behind schedule due lack of timely allocation of funds as well as local communities’ unawareness of the critical conditions, according to top officials at ULRP. 
Masoud Tajrishi, director for planning at ULRP, said a number of projects which could help inject water into the lake have not become operational as a result of fund shortage.
“For instance, out of 13 water treatment projects, only two pertaining to Tabriz and Orumiyeh facilities are underway and will most likely be completed by the year end [March 20, 2019],” he was quoted as saying by ISNA. 
The ULRP, however, has endeavored to adapt to the budget shortage and proceed with plans by more efficient management.
