Turkmenistan discussed restrictions on water withdrawal from the Syr Darya and Amu Darya

A meeting on water withdrawal limits from the Syrdarya and Amudarya rivers until 2023 was held in the Turkmen capital, where heads of water departments of Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan took part.

The parties defined water withdrawal limits for each Central Asian country, as well as considered the operation mode of the cascade of reservoirs in these river basins and approved the order of their operation.

The practice of water allocation in the Amudarya basin has been successfully implemented since 1992 and has shown itself perfectly for three decades. Water withdrawal limits enable the agrarian-industrial complexes of the countries to plan their activities taking into account the volume of distribution as well as to assist in the restoration of the Aral Sea.
