Officials from the Litani River Authority and the National Council for Scientific Research signed an agreement Monday to study the sources of pollution in the Litani River basin and to develop a plan to address the issue. The study will in particular focus on Lake Qaraoun, an artificial lake in the Bekaa Valley formed by a dam on the Litani River. Contamination of both the river and the lake has been a major source of concern in recent years. The issue was highlighted two years ago by a mass die-off of fish in Lake Qaraoun, which officials said was linked to lack of oxygen in the lake due to pollution.
