Suren Miroyan, an employee of RA Water Committee, responded to EcoLur's publication entitled “Probably 2020 Year To Experience Lack of Water?” on his FB page: “Ecolur.org writes that according to tMinistry of Emergency Situations, the filling of the reservoirs of the Republic of Armenia has decreased this year. As of January 9, 2020, it is 2-3 times less than that of the last year.

The fact that in the mountainous regions the snow layer today is several times less than it was in the previous year, is a fact and, yes, it can lead to a significant loss of water resources…
However, as of 10 January 2020, the filling capacity of the relatively large reservoirs of the Republic of Armenia is about 53 million cubic meters more than that of 10.01.2019,” Miroyan wrote on his page.

EcoLur has published data from the Ministry of Emergency Situations on the filling of the five largest reservoirs in Armenia - Akhuryan, Azat, Marmarik, Lake Arpi, Azat, noting that the level of the filling of the five largest reservoirs in Armenia has decreased as of January 9, 2020, it was twice and triple less than the same day last year, except for Akhuryan Reservoir.

 Over 53 million cubic meters of water reserves mentioned by Miroyan is located in Armenia's largest Akhuryan reservoir and three other small reservoirs - Mantash, Her-Herin and Zangakatun. At the same time, 6 to 11 reservoirs have a negative balance.
