Ministry: Crater Lake Karmir Qatar will be protected by the state
ArmInfo. Crater lake Karmir  Qatar, located in the Kotayk region of the Republic of Armenia, will  be protected by the state. According to the Ministry of the Environment, a number of Facebook  users reported that a certain citizen is using the water of the lake  through a pump for his own needs. Meanwhile, the Ministry in the case  of Karmir Qatar did not issue a permit for water use. Taking into  account the fact that the lake is part of a natural ecosystem,  Minister Romanos Petrosyan instructed to send a letter to the  inspection body for the protection of nature and subsoil in order to  find out under what conditions water is taken from the lake, as well  as to get acquainted with the problem on the spot and restore the  normal state of the lake in the procedure established by law.  Representatives of both local self-government bodies and the  inspection body went to the territory adjacent to the crater lake.  Additional information will be provided upon completion of  monitoring. Crater Lake Karmir Qatar is located at an altitude of 3530 m above  sea level, near the extinct volcano Azhdahak (the highest point of  the Geghama ridge).
