Inguri

 

or Ingur, a river in Western Georgia. Length, 213 km; basin area, 4,060 sq km.

It arises from a number of springs and glaciers in the Glavnyi, or Vodorazdel’nyi, Range of the Greater Caucasus and flows into the Black Sea. In its upper reaches, it flows through the Svaneti basin, then through a narrow gorge, and then in a gradually widening valley. At the settlement of Dzhvari, it flows out onto the Kolkhida lowlands. The river is fed primarily by glaciers and rainwater. The average yearly rate of flow at its mouth is about 170 cu m per sec. The water is at its highest level between March and September. The Inguri is suitable for floating logs, and its waters are also used for irrigation. The Inguri Hydroelectric Power Station is under construction.
