The government is working on a new regulation for small hydro electric stations to reduce their negative effect on fish populations in rivers. Some rivers will not have any new hydros at all, if they have wildlife that’s in the Red Book. https://news.am/arm/news/467475.html

... some small hydros will be audited by the law enforcement because there is information that they've received extra water, had extra unreported income and caused more damage to the surrounding nature https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBOgxfmGsdk

... PM is surprised to learn about "shadow gardens". Says the concept of "shadow economy" is clear, but he was unaware that there are big chunks of lands that aren't properly registered. During the latest deliberations on how much Sevan water to release for agriculture, he was told that 40mln m3 units more is needed. When asked about the numbers not adding up, he was told that the are areas that aren't properly registered but need the water to meet the agricultural needs. The extra water will be released, but in significantly less quantities compared to previous year (100mln), and a commission will be created to study why Sevan water is needed in addition to rivers and local reservoirs. In past, MP Pashinyan has criticized the former government for releasing too much "unneeded" water from the lake. NOW YOU KNOW WHERE IT GOES, NICOLAS!
