The water level in Lake Sevan in 2017 decreased by 5 cm and amounted  to 1900 m 42 cm

ArmInfo. The  water level in Lake Sevan as of December 25, 2017 decreased by 0.05 m  (5 cm) and amounted to 1900 m 42 cm, the Minister of Nature  Protection of Armenia Artsvik Minasyan stated on December 25 at the  final press conference.

According to the minister, the volume of water discharge for  irrigation purposes was 266.757 million cubic meters of the envisaged  270 million cubic meters water. This is 99.622 million cubic meters  more than in 2016. As of December 18, about 109.290 million cubic  meters of water flowed through the Arpa-Sevan water pipeline, which  is 10.559 cubic meters less than the same indicator for the last  year. The transparency of the water in Lake Sevan was up to 13  meters.

Meanwhile, as of May 26, 2017, the level of Lake Sevan was 1900.86 m,  which is 24 cm higher than in the previous year, and 6 cm higher than  in 1962. As it was reported, since 1962 to this day a similar  indicator of the lake level is recorded for the first time. The level  of the lake was constantly falling. However, on July 17, the National  Assembly of Armenia approved the amendments to the program "On the  restoration, conservation, reproduction and use of the Lake Sevan  ecosystem", according to which the volume of water releases from Lake  Sevan from 170 million cubic meters was increased in 2017. up to 270  million cubic meters. The reason for the increase in water releases  was the fact that in the current year the filling of the Aparan and  Azat reservoirs was 17 million cubic meters less than in the previous  year, while the Hrazdan River is less than 40 million cubic meters  full. In addition, the Akhuryanskoye reservoir was filled with 105  million cubic meters less. Despite the fact that the Ministry of  Nature Protection of Armenia opposed the proposal to increase the  water intake from Sevan, and independent experts unanimously  reiterated that lowering the water level in Sevan would lead to  irreversible consequences - to increase water logging in the lake,  the bill was passed that, as and expected, was reflected at the level  of Lake Sevan.
