Excerpt
Excerpt: The Aral Sea Basin is located in Central Asia and covers an area of 154.9 million ha. Under farming conditions characterized by high evaporation and low precipitation, most crops are irrigated. The irrigated area covered 7.9 million ha in 1999. The main crops grown under irrigation are cotton, rice, wheat, maize and fodder crops. Water resources in the region consist of renewable surface and groundwater as well as return flows in the form of agricultural drainage water and wastewater. The two major rivers in the basin are the Amu Darya River in the south and Syr Darya River in the north. The total mean annual river runoff is 116 000 million m3. The annual amount of groundwater that can be subtracted without damage is 13 100 million m3. Water use in the Aral Sea Basin ranges between 110 000 million and 117 000 million m3 annually depending on the actual water availability. The groundwater abstracted is about 10 000 million m3 per year. On average, the agriculture sector accounts for 95 percent of all water withdrawals.
