In Bursa, the villagers who irrigated their products with the water flowing from the streams in the districts of Gürsu and Kestel, allegedly painted red with chemical water released from the treatment, rebelled.
The expenses of the factories were tied to the streams passing through Samanlı District of Yıldırım. According to the claim, the water used in factories is discharged into streams without any treatment. The red colored water released into the stream attracts the reaction of those who see it. Citizens and environmentalists living in the region want the authorities to intervene in this situation.
‘WE ARE READY TO DRINK IF THOSE THAT GIVE THE DRINKABLE REPORT INCLUDE’
Farmers in Samanlı District said, “This water comes from the Gürsu treatment plant. It is collected in the water treatment plant collected by the factories. As you can see, it is clear how much it is purified. The authorities report that this water is potable. “We are ready. 20 days ago, this water did not flow like this. We are watering vegetables and fruits with this water. We have to water.”
The sea surface has turned black! Citizens reacted
‘THE FACTORIES DISCHARGE THE WATER HERE AS IS’
Murat Demir, Member of the Board of the Nature and Environment Protection Association (DOĞADER), said: “Deli tea passes through Samanlı. This tea meets Nilüfer creek and goes on a journey towards the Marmara Sea. Surrounding factories are draining their water here as it is. The water is flowing red and hot now.
“THIS IS A CRIME, WE CALL THE AUTHORITIES”
We see that a water processed by factories is discharged into this stream. Here we are standing on the Bursa plain. This place should be under protection. Our streams are polluted by the polluted water released into this area by factories operating with temporary licenses or without licenses. This is a crime, here we call on the authorities. A few uncontrolled factories should not be allowed to pollute and destroy our water resources. Here, decision-makers and supervisory mechanisms should audit these factories 7-24. “
