The water level in Lake Prespa and Lake Ohrid continues to drop. The situation in Prespa is particularly dramatic, the current water level is 85 centimeters below the September average. In contrast, the water level in Lake Ohrid is 5 centimeters below.
Both lakes, connected by passages under Mount Galicica, went back - Ohrid by two centimeters and Prespa by one. A major factor is the runoff of water through the Crn Drim River, which flows from Lake Ohrid and is used to generate energy in Macedonia, and Albania in particular. However, the crisis in Prespa can also be attributed to lower inflows.
