Wells of the South Emba artesian basin continuously gush fresh water. A lake has appeared as a result and it grows wider from day to day.
A survey in 2010 revealed nearly 170 hydrogeologic wells in Zhanasu, Atyrau Oblast.
Interesting, the two pipes had water of different temperatures - one was warm and the other cold.
Locals say there is some fish living in the new lake.
