Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Kyrgyzstan


Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked nation of five-and-a-half million people in central Asia, west of China, south of Kazakhstan.
Kyrgyzstan entirely mountainous, dominated by the Tien Shan range.94% of the country is 1,000 m above sea level with an average elevation of 2,750 m. It has many tall peaks, glaciers, and high-altitude lakes, including Lake Issyk-Kul, the world’s second largest alpine lake.
Its major environmental issues include:
• Water pollution; many people get their water directly from contaminated streams and wells; as a result, water-borne     diseases are prevalent;
• Increasing soil salinity from faulty irrigation practices
Total Renewable Water Resources: 46.5 cu km (1997)
Freshwater Withdrawal: 10.08 cu km/yr (3% domestic, 3% industrial, 94% agricultural)
Per Capita Freshwater Withdrawal: 1,916 cu m/yr (2000)
There are six main river basin groups in the country. No rivers flow into the Kyrgyz Republic. The river basins are, from the largest to the smallest (Figure 2): 
•The Syr Darya River basin. Called the Naryn River before it reaches the Fergana valley, the Syr Darya flows to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. In Uzbekistan, the Syr Darya receives the Chatkal, a tributary which rises in the Kyrgyz Republic. 
•The Chu, Talas, and Assa river basin. All three rivers flow to Kazakhstan, where the part not withdrawn is lost in the desert. 
•The southeastern river basins. These consist of small catchment areas draining to China. The main rivers are the Aksay, Sary Dzhaz, and Kek Suu, and are situated at high elevations. 
•The Lake Issyk-Kul interior basin. The lake is low-saline and it is estimated that all the flow which is not evaporated is used for irrigation or domestic purposes. 
•The Amu Darya River basin. The Amu Darya rises mainly in Tajikistan, but receives the contribution of a Kyrgyz tributary, the Kyzyl Suu, in the southwest of the country. 
•The Lake Balkhash basin. It consists of the small catchment of the Ili River, which rises in the Kyrgyz Republic and flows to this Kazakh lake. 

The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.

Pure Aqua provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Kyrgyzstan's water resources.

Kyrgyzstan's main water resources are:

  • Surface water is water from river, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Brackish Water RO.
  • Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Seawater Reverse Osmosis Systems; Desalination Systems.
  • Ground Water or brackish water is from water located in the pore space of soil and rock “Borehole well”, which can be treated using Reverse Osmosis Systems, Chemical Dosing, UV Water Sterilizers.
  • Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softener Systems, Media Water Filters.

Water Treatment in Kyrgyzstan
While Kyrgyzstan consists of several glaciers, lakes, and rivers throughout its land, the country suffers from deep mismanagement in regards to its water systems and supplies, which have descended into despair. The lack of access of fresh and potable water for the Kyrgyzstan people has presented major health and thirst problems across many villages. Diseases, such as typhoid, intestinal infections, and parasites have resulted due to animal waste, poor water quality and scarcity. Pure Aqua has supplied first-rate reverse osmosis systems in areas where water treatment plants and systems do not yet exist in Kyrgyzstan.

Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.

Pure Aqua has over 20 years of experience as a global provider of B2B water treatment solutions for a variety of applications and industries, we offer a large selection of all types of reverse osmosis and water treatment systems to meet your industrial needs. Pure Aqua’s extensive global experience in engineering and manufacturing allows us to pre-engineer and customize water treatment and reverse osmosis systems to meet a wide range of customer requirements and specifications.
