The water reservoirs in Uzbekistan were built about 50 years ago to manage agricultural irrigation for rice and cotton. Since the separation from Russia the country’s needs for crops and water allocation are drastically changing. Due to world market conditions, the country now needs more food crops with less water requirement and the development of husbandry. The reservoir management had inflicted problems upon the Aral Sea with large impacts upon fisheries, natural forests and wildlife in the delta regions of the two rivers Amudarja and Syrdarja. For the future management of the large reservoirs upstream of both rivers new geographical information system-based decision support systems are under construction. This is needed to plan the water distribution for irrigation and urban usage as well as for risk assessments in case of catastrophic events and dam breaking. Here we present monitoring and modeling attempts for the management of all dam, reservoirs and pumping facilities in Uzbekistan.
