The contaminated hydrosystem of the Caspian Sea

The Caspian also receives substantial discharges of pollutants from its many coastal communities and the extensive oil drilling and refining operations, especially in Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan. Oil pollution is likely to become a more serious problem as large investments are made to further develop the region's immense petroleum reserves, including the area off the coast of Kazakhstan. Rising water levels (discussed below) pose additional contamination threats as they inundate oil wells and toxic dumps that were located on previously dry land. The flooding also contaminates surface and ground waters to levels that exceed acceptable levels by manifold.

Located and transmitted through the occupied territories, water sources (lakes, reservoirs, rivers, canals, etc.) play an important role in the ecology of the surrounding areas along with those areas. The aggression of Armenia on the unified ecosystem in the occupied territories and indifference of international organizations to this process has caused great disaster in the region. Studies conducted over the last half century show that the Kura, Araz rivers and their main sludge are polluted outside our republic – in Georgia and Armenia. So 100 % of Armenia territory, 30 % of Georgia territory, Turkeyꞌs 31 thousand, Iranꞌs 40 thousand area, Azerbaijanꞌs 37 thousand km2 part belong to Kur-Aras rivers. So, industrial, agricultural and household waste of these states is thrown into the Kura River and this contamination contains Kurꞌs 188 thousand km2 and Arasꞌs 103 thousand km2.

Armenia is occupying Azerbaijan's territories though military aggression and violates international conventions by conducting hydro-terrorism activities. The Caucasus region covers the intersection of Europe and Asia, as well as territories between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. The trans-boundary water basins of 8 states in the region are in a joint dependence. The water resources of the Republic of Azerbaijan are 30.9 km3; about 70% (20.3 km3) of these are formed in the neighboring countries. It should be noted that these rivers flow into our country polluted. In general, the Republic of Azerbaijan is considered a country with limited water resources. The amount of river water per capita is 3219 m3 / year. If we take into account only local water resources, then this figure will be 1104 m3 / year. The ancient Azerbaijani lands play a major role in the water supply of the Armenian population as 81% of rivers' water resources in the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan are formed in Kalbajar region.
