Level of Sevan Lake Rises by 25 cm in April


SEVAN, MAY 8, NOYAN TAPAN. The level of the Sevan Lake rose by 25 sm
in April and made 1898.42 metres what is higher by 42 sm compared with
the 2005 same month index. As the Noyan Tapan correspondent was
informed by the “Hayhidromet” Gegharkunik marz department, the reason
of such a great index is the fixed heavy rains and snows and partly
overflows of rivers streaming into Sevan. Taking into account, that
overflows of rivers streaming into Sevan are expected in May as well
as the size of the water moving to the lake from the Arpa-Sevan
tunnel, it is supposed that the level of Sevan will significantly rise
up to the first half of June. In parallel to rising the level of water
in the lake, a problem arose connected with coastal territories and
constructions: in consequence of rise of the lake level, they remain
under water and start to putrefy. As a result, lack of oxygen is felt
in the lake, what has a negative influence on vital activity flora and
fauna existing in it.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
