Subsoil waters

SUBSOIL WATERS

 

SUBSOIL FRESH WATERS. Hydrological researchesaredirected mostly to determination of subsoil water resources, and examination of use chances of these resources with the purpose of elimination of restrictions emerging in economy, mainly in agricultural improvement, and removal of serious problems existing in water supply of people arising from irregular dissemination of water resources in the Republic holding scanty reserves.
Comprehensive geological-research works were carried out in plain and foothill regions containing propitious concentration condition of subsoil waters taking into consideration state standards and normative requirements to exploration of subsoil water deposits, calculation of reserves and identification of use possibilities.
Subsoil waters were explored and their reserves were confirmed within several years in order to provide settlements and industrial objects of Nakhichevan, Ganja, Khankandi, Yevlakh, Ujar, Agdash, Goychay, Qazakh, Tovuz, Shamkir, Quba, Qusar, Khachmaz, Agdam, Shamakhi, Beylaqan, Imishli, Fizuli, Zangilan, Jabrayil, Agsu, Shusha, Khojavand, and Hadrut regions with water.
Subsoil water resources of Samur-Valvalachay plain which was connected with 3. Baku water pipeline for a long year was precisely prospected, and their reserves were confirmed with the purpose of settlement of water supply problems of Baku city and Absheron peninsula. The unique researches were conducted in special expertise field in the territory of Khachmaz region together with the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Azerbaijan with the purpose of scrutiny of impact of taking of high quantity subsoil water to environment, firstly to forest cover and non-existence of negative influence was determined consequently.

Exploitation resources of subsoil fresh waters of the Republic of Azerbaijan (up to 1.0 g/l) containing lesser mineralization 
(1-3 g/l)

Possibility of obtainment of subsoil water in the amount of 15 m3 per second was investigated due to hydrological research works implemented in Alazan-Ayrichay valley as an alternative water source of Baku city and Absheron peninsula, in the territories of Oguz and Qabala regions.         
In 2005 exploration of subsoil waters was carried out in Oguz-Qabala area with the order of “Azarsu” Joint Stock Company with the intention of implementation of the task on enhancement of needs of the people of Baku, Sumgayit, and other settlements of Absheron peninsula to ecologically pure water given by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. I. Aliyev, and subsequently possibility of obtainment of 5 m3 subsoil water was defined. 
Thorough researches were conducted and suggestions were forwarded in various regions of the Republic in order to explore possibilities of irrigational use. More than 15 thousand water exploitation wells were bored beginning from 1970s as a result of these researches.
Determination of chances of irrigational use of subsoil waters was accompanied with research of hydrological-meliorative condition of the area of the Republic.
