Last minute mucilage statement from the Minister of Environment and Urbanization Murat Kurum! How will the Sea of ​​Marmara return to its former state? Latest situation in Kanal Istanbul


All kinds of technical and financial support will be given to municipalities. It will follow the process under the coordination of the governorships. As signatories, we have responsibilities. It is our duty to fulfill our promise to our citizens.

There are steps to be taken regarding the pollution in the Ergene Basin, Susurluk Basin and Sakarya. We also have investments in the Menderes Basin. Municipalities also have responsibilities. Environmental business is above politics. This job requires continuity.

We cannot use the Marmara Sea as a septic tank. That’s why we need advanced biological treatment. We say let’s not empty it. Our facilities that we will invest in will ensure this. After moving to advanced biological treatment, we need to treat these wastes. These steps will be taken within 3 years. In this way, by declaring the entire Marmara a protected area… frankly, we will follow the bird flying there.

We have recently taken important steps regarding thermal power plants all over Turkey. We made filters mandatory. They made their investments and we opened them. Marmara’s situation is more urgent. We have to work much more effectively and quickly.
