Enviromental monitorning in Naryn and Talas

Aarhus Centre in Bishkek carried out monitoring work on the state of natural water reserves in 2 regions: from June 14 to 16 in Talas region and from June 23 to 24 in Naryn region. In Talas, Talas River was surveyed, and in Naryn, Son-Kol Lake. The main task of monitoring was to study the state of water for its pollution and impact on the environment. The Talas River is the main irrigation source in the region and is also the main fill in the nearby reservoir adjacent to the border with Kazakhstan in the northwest of the country. Son-Kol is one of the most beautiful protected lakes in our country. Therefore, it was decided to conduct surveys together with water specialists from the SAEPF laboratory and study the current organic state of the lake.

Monitoring was carried out within the framework of the approved Operational Strategy of the Aarhus Centres Network and work plan for 2020. Monitoring was attended by the head of the Aarhus Centre in Bishkek and two independent expert consultants. In Talas, experts carried out a water intake at different times and in different places of the Talas River to compare and provide objective information on the state of the water.

On Son-Kol Lake, extensive water withdrawals have been carried out at several locations. The water and the bottom soil were taken with the help of the staff of Karatal-Zhapyryk reserve, who provided a motor boat and took direct part themselves together with the experts of the Aarhus Centre.
