  • In the news: A vision document of the Lanzhou Urban and Rural Planning Design Institute has proposed a water pipeline starting from the southwest point of Lake Baikal.

RT, Russia's news network, has already reported that water levels of the pristine lake have fallen to a critical low of 456 metres, mainly due to the dwindling inflows. Consequently, residents near the lake have been advised to reduce consumption of water and power.
