High water occurs in March or April, and in summer the upper course dries up in places. The mean flow rate 60 km from the mouth is 2.1 cu m per sec, with a maximum of 4.15 cu m per sec and a minimum of 0.19 cu m per sec. The city of Novocherkassk is located at the influx of the Tuzlov into the Aksai.
