Details, Impact and Progress
Salty winds will affect surrounding areas and also can damage farming. The salt-saturated lake threatens agriculture nearby as storms may carry the salt. There is a serious threat about the future of surrounding lands which are used to produce apples, grapes, walnuts, almonds, onions, potatoes, as well as aromatic herbal drinks, candies and tasty sweet pastes.
