This situation was also reported to be the same with Isikli Lake, Aras River, Karasu River and Camlidere Dam Lake populations from Turkey (Erdogan et al., 2002; Balik et al., 2004; Bostanci and Polat, 2009) and Iskar River
in Bulgaria (Raikova-Petrova et al., 2012).
Through its subsidiary "Svoge Hydro-Power Plant AD", PVB Power Bulgaria AD has constructed a total of 9 hydro power plants along the Iskar River
, investing EUR 115 M.
The project envisages the construction of nine small hydro power plants on the Iskar River
about 40 km north of Sofia, in Svoge and Mezdra municipalities, of which two have already been completed in 2008 and 2009.
The amount of rain in the capital Sofia reached 47 liters per square meter, with the Iskar River
rising by 1.5 meters nearly reaching the level of several bridges.
"We are working very actively to secure the beltway, and also the bridges on the Iskar River
and several other spots.
