The rising popularity of Lake Sevan also has its downsides, particularly the increasing pollution of the lake. We need to keep clean the places we dive and swim in to also develop ecotourism in Armenia.
Each season ArmDiving organizes diving trips with a single aim of cleaning the bottom of Sevan from tires, bottles, old fishnets and other garbage that pollute our lake. Already over 500 bags of trash have been collected from the bottom of the lake during the previous years and we are constantly expanding our cleaning areas.
We do realize that it is not possible to clean the bottom of the lake with just several divers, but our aim is mostly to prevent the escalated pollution of the lake and also grab the public attention to the matter.
