Despite higher precipitation in the fall, Karaj Dam (also known as Amir Kabir) west of Tehran is still not what it should have been, Mehdi Fotokian, director of the dam said.
Located in Karaj, Alborz Province, it is one of the five dams around Tehran, which supplies water to the capital. The dam has a capacity to hold 205 million cubic meters of water, but currently holds 118.7 mcm of water.
At the start of autumn, the dam was 79% full, but three months later the water level has declined and now has 58% of the capacity.
