    The Altash Water Conservancy Project stands on the border between Kashgar and Kizilsu Kirghiz. It was started in 2011 with the aim of solving the basin’s extreme seasonal flooding. The project costs nearly 11 billion yuan in total and is sometimes called the “Xinjiang Three Gorges Dam.” In May 2020, the main part of the dam was finished, at a height of 164.8 meters. The project will be able to store 2.25 billion cubic meters of water when fully completed. It’s expected to control flooding, relieve spring droughts and power the south of Xinjiang.
