The Subsidence of Hamedan Plain and its effects
Dr. Ghorashi in an interview announced that the regional subsidence first reported from Rafsanjan and Zarand areas.
It can be said that irregular pompage of the underground water is the main reason for subsidence. Dr. Ghorashi added that subsidence has also been reported in south of Tehran and Varamin but Hamedan plain is the most important. Due to the existence of Western Powerplant, much anxiety has been created.
