Kirov Reservoir, is a reservoir of the Talas River, located in Manas District of Talas Province of Kyrgyzstan. It is used for irrigation of lands in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.

The main function of this construction is to control the irrigation of the land in the Talas Valley. The reservoir has a capacity of 550 million cubic meters, allowing to irrigate 55,000 ha of land between Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. The dam is the emblematic construction of the reservoir. It is located in the northern part and thus controls the flow of the river flowing into Kazakhstan. It is the first dam of this type built in the country. It is 257m long and is built in light concrete, with a a buttress structure. The dam was completed after 10 years of work. It was made functional one year later, in 1976. The figure of Lenin, whose 100th birthday was celebrated during the works, is standing at the entrance of the 86m high dam. It is modelled in the concrete so characteristic of Soviet infrastructure and represents the durability and reliability of the structure.
