At a government meeting held on January 18, Deputy Prime Minister Myratgeldi Meredov reported to President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov about a new freshwater field that was discovered in the territory of the Khalachsky district of Lebap Region and was registered as Halac-II in late 2018.
According to the state information agency TDH , "the resources of the field with a total area of 58.7 square kilometers will provide the population with an additional amount of drinking water - more than 30 thousand cubic meters per day, which is 348 liters per second."
The head of state instructed Minister of Agriculture and Water Management Annageldi Yazmyradov together with the State Corporation "Turkmengeologiya" to step up work in the field of rational use of water resources and improve the supply of irrigated water to the farmland of the country.
Recall that a month ago, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov demanded that the head of the state company Turkmengeology look for new fields .
It is also worth noting that the regions of the country still have problems with water supply.
