RECONSTRUCTION AND CONSTRUCTION OF SMALL RESERVOIRS, DRILLING WELLS FOR WATERING OF WILD ANIMALS IN THE TERRITORY OF BARSAKELMES STATE NATURE RESERVE
- Conservation and increase of the number of wildlife (gazelles, saigas and kulans, etc.) in the Barsakelmes state nature reserve;
- Construction of watering points on the island – well drilling and repair of existing artificial ponds;

Objectives of the project:
- drilling of hydrogeological wells, carrying out experimental hydrogeological works on them;
- testing the rocks of the aeration zone and all identified water sources (surface and underground), studying the physico-mechanical and water-physical properties of the soil, chemical analysis of surface, groundwater.
- the development of less costly irrigation methods using modern water-saving technologies;
- revision of existing irrigation methods and their reconstruction using modern water-saving technologies;
- Drilling of wells for watering wild animals in the Barsakelmes nature reserve
- construction of watering points on the island – drilling a well and repairing existing artificial ponds.
