MaNaSi River wetland lies between diluvial fan and alluvial plain of MaNaSi River system ,about 300 km2 squares. It is a typical inland river nature wetland in arid areas. local people have done massive construction of ecological engineering during more than fifty years. The mainly achievements are the twelve reservoirs which have formed a large-scale cluster of wetland reservoirs. They link MaNaSi river with man-made oasis and turn a single headwaters and static function wetland into a powerful function dynamic wetland which has various headwaters. The wetland has powerful preventive function: It can prevent wetland from shriveling and retrograding, can prevent or control flood, fight drought, keep ecological balance of wetland and achieve sustainable development, and has a capacity storing enough water and conserving water, can conserve headwaters well because of its particular hydrogeology and condition of ecology. The wetland can completely resolve uncoordinated contradiction between agriculture needing water and river storing water by cluster of wetland reservoirs of adjustable function. It turns a nature wetland into a new wetland which has fully functions, diversify ecology, sustainable development through construction of ecological engineering..this wetland is a model of construction of ecological engineering on inland river wetland of arid areas
