A third hydropower plant is planned to be built in Aragats village, in addition to the existing two plants.
This has caused a panic in the village. The locals are ready to protest but they need the support of environmentalists. Today one cannot even find frogs in the Gegharot village which was once rich in redeyes.
The water is not safe even for irrigation purposes. Stock-breeders say that even a small amount of water can be fatal to animals.
