Earlier this lake was a place for townspeople, families come here. Now the water level in the reservoir has fallen so much that it is visible to the naked eye. And the environmental component of this place is far from ideal. So the number of people willing to come here to relax, probably considerably diminished.
Locals know one of the reasons of the situation. The local place has become the main supplier of ice for ice town the capital of Buryatia. Is not removed at the time the material is still on the shore.
