Formerly covering an area of around 3000 square kilometres, they were almost completely drained following the 1991 uprisings in Iraq and have in recent years been reflooded.

Formerly covering an area of around 20,000 km, the main sub-marshes, the Hawizeh, Central, and Hammar Marshes and all three were drained at different times for different reasons.
