Water shortage on lake Baikal?!

The level of lake Kotokel situated less then 2km from the shore of lake Baikal has fallen two meters over the past year. The reson is most likely the logging of the surrounding forests and the subsequent disappearance of the springs that feed the lake. It is increadible to find water shortage problems in such a close proximity to the largest body of fresh water in the world.
