M.Choisuren, the Water Office’s water monitoring specialist, recently spoke about water issues affecting the South Gobi region.

The Gobi region has a shortage of water needed for drinking, manufacturing, and herding. Yet the state is planning to build industrial complexes, factories, and apartments in the Gobi region in connection with the Oyutolgoi and Tavantolgoi deposit mines. Preliminary research shows that the underground water needed for these projects is inadequate in the Gobi region. Oyutolgoi is planning to take additional water from Galbiin Gobi. But the Tavantolgoi project is facing a shortage. The nearest large source is Balgasiin Ulaan Lake, which has clean water. Choisuren said it would be regretful to uses such clean water for washing coal rather than for drinking. He said less pure water should be used for coal processing. He added that his office is going to propose that the sate protect clean water sources in the Gobi region, including Balgasiin Ulaan Lake. Choisuren also stated that there are 134 monitoring pits in the Gobi region at present. Water usage levels could be determined by data collected from these pits. He also said water research is being done in soums, where water is also in short supply.
