The occupancy rate of the Naip Dam, which meets the drinking water needs of Süleymanpaşa, the central district of TEKİRDAĞ, dropped to 28 percent. Tekirdag Turhan Toprak, General Manager of the Water and Sewerage Administration, stated that the occupancy rate of the dam was 66 percent in January 2020 and said, “When it goes like this, it seems that we will not be able to support Süleymanpaşa with surface waters in the coming period and we will try to provide water directly with groundwater.”
There was a serious decrease in the water level of the Naip dam, which meets 1 quarter of the drinking water need of the Süleymanpaşa district. The pump, which should be completely submerged in the dam and pumping water to the city’s drinking water line, came to the surface due to the fall. It was observed that the measuring poles measuring the water level of the dam were also exposed. It has been reported that there are dangerous decreases in groundwater in Tekirdağ, where 86 percent of the drinking water is met from groundwater.
‘January AVERAGE PER SQUARE METER 23-24 KG’TESKI General Manager Turhan Toprak said, “When we look at the precipitation average of Tekirdağ, we have data for the past 32 years. The average we got from our Meteorology Provincial Directorate was 600 kilograms per square meter. When we look at the realizations in recent years, especially 2022 The average of the year is 350 kilograms per square meter. Therefore, we see that there is a 50 percent decrease in precipitation. Again in January averages, we see that while the long-term average is 58 percent in Tekirdağ, it has been 23 and 24 kilograms per square meter, especially in the last 2 years. This has been a significant drought in recent years. Saying that Naip Dam meets 1 quarter of the water needs of the central neighborhoods in Tekirdağ’s Süleymanpaşa district, Toprak said; “When we look at the end of 2022, when we come to the present from 2020, the occupancy rate of the dam was 66 percent in 2020, while it was around 40 percent in 2022, while the occupancy rate of the dam decreased to 28 percent in January 2023. We see that 1/4 of the water requirement of Tekirdağ Süleymanpaşa center remains approximately 6.5 million cubic meters of water for 1 year in the current dam.When it goes this way, it seems that we will not be able to support Süleymanpaşa with surface waters in the coming period and we will not be able to provide water directly with underground waters. “This is an important cost for us. We can say that there is an important risk with the decrease in groundwater. In this regard, important steps should be taken in the country and around the world in order to prevent climate change. Again, with this awareness, our citizens should make significant efforts to save water. ‘THRUKIA REGION TOWARDS WATER FASTER. GOING’
Turhan Toprak stated that the drought caused by the lack of precipitation caused water problems in many cities throughout the country, and said, “The decrease in dams may not affect us significantly, since 86 percent of our city’s drinking water is supplied from groundwater. Due to the continuous increase and industry, the population is increasing annually, especially Corlu, Cerkezkoy and Kapaklı regions, our underground water reserves in these regions have also decreased significantly. The water level has dropped below the danger zone. In this regard, DSI took the necessary measures and took these regions as Çerkezköy, Kapaklı, Çorlu, KirklareliWhen we pass to Visa ve Luleburgaz have declared their areas as closed areas. Therefore, we are at the point of not giving permissions for drilling underground water wells here. The Thrace region has now started to go towards water scarcity. There is a great risk in terms of both surface waters and groundwater. In order to prevent this, it is necessary to take decisions at the high level of country policies. Industry needs to change direction. It is necessary to change the direction of the population. If we do not do something at the world level in terms of climate change, global warming and climate change will take our region among the dry places,” he said.
