Ufa is a large industrial city in the Central part of Russia, the administrative center of the Ufa region. Although, today only old-timers say so. Back in the 50s of the last century, the republic of Bashkiria was formed, now Bashkortostan, with the main city of Ufa. We will find out which river flows in Ufa, and what value is the water potential of the region.

Water resources of Bashkiria

There are picturesque rivers and lakes in Bashkortostan. Fishing, rafting, green tourism attract people. The capital of the republic is washed by river waters. The main river in Ufa is Belaya, it is the main source of drinking water, supplies enterprises, of which there are many in the city.

The Ufa region also has many water bodies. The rivers are fed by rains and melting snow, less often underground waters are sources. Floods are observed in spring, the water level in the channels rises by several meters. The rivers of Ufa carry water to the Caspian Sea.

In general, the state of Bashkiria's water resources is deplorable, some large rivers from spring to autumn have a negative water balance. The reason is the great needs of the factories and combines of the republic.

Many farms dump animal waste into the water. Residues of chemical fertilizers fall from the fields. This is a potential threat to the rivers of the region.

On which river is Ufa

The city of the same name with the river, also the capital of Bashkiria, is located on the peninsula. So what river flows in Ufa? Or is there another body of water? If you look at the map, the city is spread out between two rivers. Looking more closely, you can see that the Ufa rivers include three water streams: Belaya, Dema and Ufa.

Belaya is one of the main waterways of the region. In addition, many sights from past centuries have survived on its banks - a fortress, a cathedral, a mosque. Alas, local authorities are only planning to improve the recreation area.
