Forest areas along such Bashkir rivers as the Ik, the Usen, the Big Nugush have being increased (about 20 hectares of forests on the whole). Soon they are planning to build houses and benches as well as to plant young trees near most of springs and brooks. All these measures are part of the program on preservation and reproduction of water resources in Tuimazinsky and Belsky Regions.
