The legislation “On the bowels of the earth” will be amended, as well as rules are being prepared in connection with the order, design, drilling and operation of artesian and subartesian wells. Mutallim Abdulgasanov, head of the water resources management department of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, said this.
“Groundwater should be protected. If there are enough surface water resources on the territory, groundwater drilling is not allowed. However, at shallow depths in private plots, the use of groundwater is allowed,” Abdulgasanov noted.
