Pretashkent Aquifer (GGRETA Project)

The Pretashkent Aquifer is an artesian transboundary aquifer system shared by Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. A constant lowering of groundwater heads has been observed which is caused by overexploitation. Since groundwater in the Pretashkent Aquifer is practically non-renewable this situation calls for renewal of transboundary cooperation about sustainable use of the aquifer.
