'I don't think that we will experience floods during melting in Yerevan. The city has water discharge channels, which operate. Let's hope that everything will be good and nothing extraordinary will be recorded. Collected water will be discharged with movable pumps,' said Major David Grigoryan, Head of Rescue Force Coordination Unit of Yerevan Rescue Department, told the journalists.
Reminder: the problem of a possible flood in case of fast snow melting in Yerevan was discussed at the meeting of the public council adjunct to RA Nature Protection Minister.
The participants of the meeting, as well as the representatives of Yerevan Municipality and 'Veolia Jur' Company recorded that related risks are not assessed sufficiently and need additional examinations.
Nature Protection Minister Artsvik Minasyan proposed to include this issue on the agenda of the next meeting, to invite other specialists from RA Ministry for Emergency Situations and other competent bodies, develop and present solution mechanisms.
