The territory of Turkmenistan is characterized by difficult hydro-geological conditions - 2/3 of it has no river flows, and only limited areas can boast of fresh groundwater. There are similar territories in Kopetdag, Koytendag and Bolshoi Balkhan - The formation of resources here is carried out due to atmospheric precipitation, and in river valley areas due to channel losses.
