The water level of Lake Egirdir in the Taurus Mountains of Western Armenia has dropped by an average of 4 meters over the past 3 years due to excessive water intake. Due to the drying up of the area, tectonic rocks formed on the shores of the lake, formed millions of years ago. Honored Academician Dr. Erol Kesici, in his scientific studies on the lakes, drew attention to the rapid drying of the lakes and water areas, emphasizing many reasons. The main ones are agricultural irrigation, as well as excessive water intake, pollution and global warming.

As it is known, in the third geological period, the large holes formed during the formation of the Taurus Mountains were partially filled with water over time, and lakes appeared.

Fossils found on dry shores are made up of rocks, plants, and animals that have been formed since the formation of the lake in the geological age.
