The article presents the results of engineering and geoecological studies of the salinity of the soils of the city of Nukus to the ground water level. The results of observations of changes in the city’s ground water level are presented. It was found that the increase of the water level leads to additional salinization of the soils, which worsens the ecological situation of the city, has a negative impact on green spaces and reduces the longevity of plants. According to the results of research, maps-schemes of salinization of the city’s soil were compiled. Studies have shown that the soils of the territory of Nukus are saline and mainly belong to the chlorine-sulphate type of salinity.
