Akhuryan River has almost dried out because of small-scale hydropower plants, says the Pan- Armenian Environmental Front.
"As of today there are three such plants on the river, with two more being built. A few days ago we visited the territory of Marmarashen, a plant operated by Elbist LLC and saw that its dam blocks the whole river while its fish-way is not wide enough for fish to pass. We hope that this information will concern relevant authorities," says the Front.
