Abstract

High mountain Lake Sevan is the principal regulator of the Armenian water resources used for irrigation, energy, and general water supply purposes. The lake resources have diminished substantially. In less than 50 years some 23 billion cubic meters of water have been drained from Lake Sevan, which constitutes about 40% of its secular resources. As a result, the lake water level has lowered by more than 18 meters.
