He said the situation in the lake is very bad. “If measures are not taken soon, it will be impossible to compensate for the damage,” he said.


Lake Urmia is located in the middle of Eastern and Western Azerbaijan provinces of Iran. 70 percent of 6 000 sq m lake has dried up. Every litre of the lake water contains 400 grams of salt. The level of water in the lake began to fall from 1995. Experts warn that salt storms will happen, it will affect people’s health and agriculture.
