“Arevis-1” SHPP is being constructed on this river, under the project its derivation length will be 2478 meters. Thus, the SHPP will pipe a total river area of 2478 meters, which will make up 29․1529412% of the river.

Under EcoLur’s Ecological Risk Model, it will cause critical situation for the river.
