While Turkey was engaged in Libya and Syria, Istanbul was on the verge of water hunger


Istanbul, the largest metropolis in Turkey (more than 15 million inhabitants), is on the verge of water starvation. Two reservoirs, Kazandere and Pabucdere, supplying it with fresh water, have practically evaporated. The Istanbul Water Supply and Sewerage Authority informed the public about the impending disaster.


The water level of Kazandere is 8,54% and Pabucdere is 2,46%

- state officials.

It is noted that this is a record low in history. At the same time, the city authorities clarified that at the beginning of April 2020, the Kazandere reservoir was filled only by 36,65%, and Pabucdere - by 23,47%.

As experts explained, the level of reservoirs has dropped significantly due to the lack of sufficient precipitation in winter. As a result, the reservoirs actually dried up.

Public figures and media representatives began to launch quadrocopters into the sky to see for themselves what was happening. They saw a really scary picture.


After that, people had a question for the authorities. What have Turkish officials been doing all this time? Now for many residents of Istanbul it has become obvious that while Ankara enthusiastically gratified its ambitions in Syria and Libya, the inhabitants of the country's largest metropolis were simply forgotten, leaving them alone with the impending crisis.

      You can run water from the Volga-Don Canal to Crimea, but from where to Istanbul? Is it possible to transfer from the Dnieper? All the same, the Ukrainians let this water pass by the Crimea, and here the Turkish brothers can be helped by a tanker to deliver it.

        I looked at the map, on the "European" shore near Istanbul there is Lake Buyukcekmece, 35 km to the strait, it is practically within the city limits. On the northern edge of the Alibey reservoir. On the "Asian" coast is the Omerli reservoir (26 km to the strait). All these are rather large reservoirs, why it is impossible to take water from there is not clear. request It seems to me that the situation in Istanbul is being overly dramatized.

        Is it possible to transfer from the Dnieper? All the same, the Ukrainians let this water pass by the Crimea, and here the Turkish brothers can be helped by a tanker to deliver it.

        Yes, it would be a perEmog. fellow For the sake of this, we could stand in a chain and pass them on to spite Putin. laughing

    Oh, problem. Until the rains will last. And what could they do - buy snow and ice from the Norwegians? The incorrigible pranks of nature's old woman, so to speak.
    Someone sane weather from the Gulf Stream, and someone, they write, the meadow moth ate crops.
