Issue of Possible Floods Discussed at Nature Protection Ministry


Upon RA Nature Protection Minister Artsvik Minasyan’s proposal the issue of Getar and Hrazdan river drainage systems and Yerevan drainage system located in Avan administrative area was again on the agenda of the meeting of the Public Council adjunct to RA Nature Protection Minister. Armen Dashyan, Head of department For Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters and Protection of Population of Rescue Service of RA Ministry for Emergency States, informed that RA Ministry for Emergency States developed and submitted proposal on implementing preventative measures to protect the residential areas in Armenia from probable spring floods and flooding risks. In his speech the speaker recorded the high risk of probable floods. Attaching much value to fundamental and systematic solution to this problem, Minister Artsvik Minasyan simultaneously considers it urgent to implement preventative measures and respond operatively to the current situation and possible risks. For this very purpose, the Public Council has reached a decision to apply to the executive body with a proposal to form an interdepartmental committee, as the Information and Public Relations Department of RA Nature Protection Ministry informs.
