that sea is not just water, whole ecosystem is destroyed, hundres endemic species have died out
>>
Russians redirected the tributaries that went into the Aral Sea while directing all the distributaries to irrigate parts of Uzbekistan to grow "white gold," aka cotton as well as to create irrigation canals. The problem is, when the USSR collapsed, they never undid this horribly failed system and the lake has been almost completely drained and is pretty much impossible to save.
>>

also i suppose they damn need that irrigation more than muh endemic species

how could you even fix something like this?

The Soviets had no problem purging living things from existence.

Fedorafags still think its a good idea though.
>>
Was it naturally occurring?
Lentic or lotic? It could probably be fixed if it's lotic. Though I'm reading lake.. so I doubt you could ever restore the ecosystem to it's entirety
>>
>>37414343
They didn't though. The majority of people in that region made their living off of fishing, and when the USSR put up the dams and irrigation systems people lost their living and became impoverished, as well as all the nuclear dumping done by the soviets became a problem because the sandy bottom started to kick up in dust storms and the area now has ridiculous tuberculosis rates, and cancer rates iirc.

No, Russia put up dams and irrigation canals.

No, they didn't because they're not an extremely developed country nor were they looking to be, but the USSR wanted the cotton because of its value. They would've been fine if you had left them alone, same as Afghanistan.

I traveled to India a few years ago and there were criminal gangs in Delhi that would travel to areas with underground aquifers, illegally pump the water and then sell it at ludicrous prices in water-starved areas. The sustainable water draw for the Delhi water shed is something like 800 million gallons a day but they actually draw 1.1 billion gallons.

They are a completely undeveloped spit of land that did not want to be exploited as they were. You took their cotton and ran leaving behind a shithole mess that has no goods to sell to gain money and does not have resources to rely on. They could not be part of a market economy nor a traditional economy.

Oh please. There's already hundreds of pipelines that go over aquifers. Hell, there are literally thousands of inactive wells that drilled through the aquifers.

also you are literally reatrd, they were a part of ussr, like a state in your country, ussr wanted to develop them, are you racist and think that people dont want to have their region developed if they are muslims? it went wrong but still helped them, nobody wanted to destroy aral too

Yes and in virtually none of those areas is the aquifer actually necessary for the water supply in that area.

Nebraska's ONLY water supply is its aquifer.
