The residents of Lake Sevan littoral communities are beating an alarm signal that over 270 million cum water intake has been implemented out of Lake Sevan. 'We have information that the volume set for water intakes have already exceeded the limit and more water has already flown through Sevan-Hrazdan Hydrocascade than 270 million,' Sevan Town resident is beating an alarm signal.
For the purpose of checking the alarm signal we observed the data of Hydromet Service on the level of Lake Sevan and intake from there as of 11 September, according to which 261,857 cum million water has already been let out of Lake Sevan. As a result of water outlets, Lake Sevan has decreased by 31 cm getting from 1900.91 meters to 1900.61 meters. According to the expert estimates, around 403 million cum water has been taken out of Lake Sevan, which was estimated given the formula that one centimeter is equal to 13 million cum water (the principle of the calculation is done according to Georgi Gevorgyan's formula, http://armef.com/hy/news/verlutsutyun/article_1382375816/).
As it turns out the irrigation seasonal water outlets haven't been accomplished, but the government's intention to let out 1 billion cum water out of Lake Sevan has been accomplished by 40%.
