Artemia ship once again afloat in Lake Urmia 

April 13, 2019 - 22:2

Artemia ship, which was stuck on the lakebed for a long time due to dryness of Lake Urmia once again floated. 

Recent downpours causing flood that recently left many provinces of Iran submerged, have made the world’s second largest saltwater lake come back to life, as the water level of the northwestern Lake Urmia has raised dramatically.

Currently, volume of water in the Lake Urmia reached 3.13 billion cubic meters, while last year only 1.99 billion cubic meters of water was flowing in the lake in the same period.
