Qweik River Basin

The Qweik River rises in Turkey and discharges in Syria, forming a closed drainage basin. Before the 1950s, the Qweik was the main source of freshwater for the city of Aleppo. However, the river and tributary springs have today run dry as a result of rising demand in Aleppo, the regulation of the river, and the over-exploitation of groundwater resources.
