Blooming in Lake Sevan has got unprecedented scales: Ex-Deputy Minister of RA Nature Protection Ministry (currently Environment Ministry) has published the satellite images showing the state of the lake as of 1 July, where Larger and Small Lake Sevan have a green color. The environmentalists are again beating an alarm signal and highlighting all this is the consequences of the additional water outlets and reduction in the lake level.
The decrease in the lake level results in the increase in the concentration of organic substances: algae start intensively reproducing under the conditions of high temperature and waterlogging processes are getting more active.
It should be mentioned that as of 2 July the level of Lake Sevan made up 1900.81 m and compared with the same day last year the lake level made up 1900.82 m.
