Lake Baikal Might Share Fate of Aral Sea

Russian government is concerned about Mongolia's plans to construct three hydroelectric power stations on River Selenga flowing into Baikal.

      According to ecologists it may cause gradual shallowing and drying of the unique lake.

      Russian energy companies, as well as ministries in charge are apprehensive of the potential threat to this country's water resources from friendly Mongolia. Implementation of the project that involves construction of a large power plant on the Selenga River and similar constructions on two of its inflows may drastically decrease the level of Lake Baikal.

      The RF Ministry for Nature Management emphasizes that urgent joint expert assessment is required for identifying potential risks of this project implementation.
