Description: Recent studies funded by the OFID under Phase I-IV of this project exposed the potential for storing seasonal and temporary originating excessive water flows in the aquifers of the Fergana Valley, located in the Syrdarya River upstream. Potential and free capacities were determined to store excessive water flows in the aquifers and technologies were identified for recovery the stored water for agricultural use. However to upscale these technological interventions to the basin scale this study to be continued for different environments of the Syrdarya River and Amudarya River basins.
