Public co-operation helps bring dried Iranian lake near border to Afghanistan to life

Abundant rainfall in Southeastern Iran has brought water back to Lake Hamoun after 15 years of dryness. Local people celebrated the event in and around the lake. With the rise of floods, the Sistan-Baluchistan Department of the Environment enlisted public assistance and began efforts to facilitate greater water accumulation in the lake.

The department has lauded the overt cooperation of the public and adds that extending such cooperation into neighbouring Afghanistan could further replenish the long-dried-out lake.
