Due to excessive pollution, about 40 tons of fish have been washed away on the shore of the lake. Pollution is mainly caused by sewage. This has attracted international attention. Such a huge disaster is the first time that this region has occurred.

Highlights:
♦ A fishing ban was imposed on the reservoir in 2018. However, these actions are not enough to stop pollution.
