Fact Sheet, Kyrgyzstan

Most of Kyrgyz water originates from melting snow and glaciers. Precipitation varies from 130 to 680 millimetres per year. By international agreement, 25 percent of water resources can be retained. These are used generally used for irrigation (90% of water consumption), as the lowlands suitable for agriculture are located in a zone of insufficient moistening. Irrigation canals are taking out water from the river basins Chu, Talas Syrdaria, lake Issyk-Kul. 80 percent of the arable land in the country is irrigated.

Kyrgyzstan has considerable reserves of water resources – annual average makes 2,458 km3. There are total of 27826 rivers are located on the country territory; majority of these are trans-boundary rivers.

The main source of drinking water supply is ground water. This is also used to meet industrial, and partially irrigation needs.

Half of the villages have no functioning water system. In the southern Oblasts of Osh and Jalalabad, only about 25 percent of the villages have working water systems. Due to poor maintenance of the facilities and insufficient resources available for operations, the reliability and safety of the service of great concern and source of discontent for the population. Intermittent water supply is regular phenomenon, particularly in the summer months.

Water resources taken from nature raised to 8.007 billion m3; 306 of these from ground water sources (2006). 4.533 billion m3 consists the utilized water volume; 93% of it served for irrigation; and 3% was supplied for the needs of the households. Water losses are reported to be the average of 40% for the country. 21% of the wastewater is treated: 1.6% of this volume is in villages. 62 towns and 40 villages are served by operated sewerage systems.
