Turkmenistan Environmental Issues:
Turkmenistan has many environmental issues regarding water. There is pollution of the Caspian Sea. A large share of the Amu Darya has been diverted into irrigation, which is contributing to that river's inability to replenish the Aral Sea. Due to poor irrigation methods, the soil has become water logged and salination has occurred. Pesticides and agricultural chemicals have contaminated the soil and groundwater. In addition, desertification is occurring.
