New water reservoir to be built in E Kazakhstan region
East Kazakhstan region is set to build a water reservoir and reconstruct two more reservoirs. Governor of the region Yermek Kosherbayev said it at a briefing in the Central Communications Service today, Kazinform News Agency reports.

In his address to the nation, President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev stressed the importance of the rational use of water resources. 40% of the country’s water ponds are concentrated in the East Kazakhstan region. Water is the main factor of raising yield. Next year we will begin the reconstruction of  Uideninskiy and Kandysu water reservoirs, and construction of a reservoir on the Kenderlik River in Zaissan district, said the governor.

As a result, the area of irrigated and cropping lands will be expanded to 30 thousand hectares. 830 farm units will be provided with water.
