About Project

Kanisib Dam and Zab Transmission Canal is designed to restore Urmia Lake. A one-year quality monitoring program was performed in 7 stations monthly. All physicochemical, biological and pollution parameters of water and sediment were measured in Asarab laboratory. In the following, identification, evaluation and analysis of the effects of pollution sources were carried out in the catchment area and around the reservoir. Water quality and ecological modelling were performed.

Actual services:

  • One-year monthly qualitative and biological monitoring program performed in 7 stations
  • Measurement of contamination in the soil, and groundwater
  • Identification of pollution sources based on anomalous pollutant trends
  • Analyzing the impacts of the pollutants in the watershed and around the reservoir
  • Providing Environmental Management & Monitoring Plans
  • Eutrophication and stratification modeling using the CE-Qual-W2 model
  • Generating solutions to prevent eutrophication of the reservoir in the various sub-basins of the dam

The results of this study were also used in Urmia Lake modelling.
