As the result of the works conducted by the specialists of the State corporation “Turkmengeology”, the deposits of drinking water with a total area of 130.8 square kilometers were discovered in Lebap velayat.
The water deposits are located at the Turkmenabat field, located on the left bank of Amudarya, on the shores of Boyrabap and Berzen drainage channels and registered as “Turkmenabat’” underground deposit. It was reported by the Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of ministers Shahym Abdrahmanov at a Government meeting.
The volume of reserves of this deposit will allow to provide local population with clean drinking water regularly, the Vice-Premier marked.
Underlining that today the water diplomacy opens opportunities for a systematic dialog on issues related to the formation and restoration of water sources, their reasonable and rational consumption, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov addressed the Vice-Premier with corresponding instructions.
