Slight improvements in Ohrid Lake levels, Prespa remains critical


Water levels in lake Ohrid are up by two centimeters from yesterday.

The level is still 14 centimeters below the February average, while lake Prespa is whole 1.63 metes below the average. Prespa is just three centimeters above the absolute minimum.

Relatively warm weather is already melting the snow caps and there is hope that this will improve the dire hydro situation in Macedonia’s two main lakes.

However, the DUI-led Government will likely drain the lakes once again to sell hydro power to the neighbors.
