EcoLur – “Trchkan” Initiative Group
“Trchkan” Initiative Group has applied to Nature Protection Minister Aram Harutyunyan in regard with the problem of constructing a small HPP in Last Iver Gorge next to the waterfall. Activists think that already a small HPP, “Khachaghbyur”, operates on the tributary to Aghstev River, Paghjur, and there is an intention to construct the second one. Ministry already issued two permits for water use to “ATBA” Company for these HPPs still in 2011. “We think that the construction of two small HPPs will bring to the disturbance of unique ecosystem and landscape, tree felling and consequently to unforeseeable consequences,” the statement says.
