MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. An extremely low water level is expected this year in Russia’s Baikal Region and the Lake Baikal water level will drop 30-35 cm below the critical mark, Director of the Russian Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand said on Tuesday.
"The level of Lake Baikal has already declined 7 cm lower than the critical mark of 456 m. We expect this level to drop 30-35 cm below the critical one by May 1," Vilfand said. "The forecast is not a standard one, 10-15 cm than in the last year," he added.
"Nothing catastrophic will take place because such level decline was observed 11 times in the last 55 years after construction of the Irkutsk Hydro and no significant environmental consequences occurred," Vilfand said.
