Osh province is located in the South Kyrgyzstan in south-east of the Fergana Valley, bordering upon Uzbekistan in the north, Tajikistan in the west, and China in south-east.
Major irrigation schemes of the Osh province occupy intermountain troughs and valleys. The irrigation sources are mountain rivers, streams, reservoirs built in troughs, and partially artesian wells and springs. Almost all provincial rivers are the tributaries of the Syrdarya river and only some are the tributaries of the Amudarya river and of the Tarim river basin. Furthermore, the province has inter-republican systems, such as Ak-Bura, Karadarya, SFC, Karkidon, and Isphairam.
Differences in natural, climatic, and economic characteristics of the irrigated areas have an effect on patterns of operation and reconstruction in irrigation systems and on crop irrigation techniques.
Osh BWMO consists of 7 district (rayon) water management divisions, 2 canal authorities, and 1 hydrological site.
