Nohur lake which existed as a natural lake until 1949, used to be surrounded by a swamp covered with dense reeds and water plants and there was a lake with yellowish-green water in a deep groove in the central part of it. In 1949, by building a soil dam with 850 m length, 8-10 m height and 4-6 m width, a water-storage reservoir was constructed in the south part of this lake.
The length of the Nohur lake at present time is 1925 m, width is 1355 m and its total area is 240 ha. Maximum depth reaches 24 m and volume of the water is about 16 million m3.
Water of Damiraparan (70%) and Vandam (30%) rivers is spilt into Nohur lake. Besides refining the water of the above stated rivers, Nohurgishlag water-storage reservoir has a great significance in meeting needs for water of agriculture of Gabala, Aghdash, Goychay and Ujar regions.
