Boats are tracked against pollution in the Aegean Sea

Cleaning and protection measures continue without slowing down so that the sea saliva, which is caused by the pollution in the Marmara Sea, does not occur in the Aegean Sea in the future.

Boats and yachts cruising around the world-famous bays of Muğla and anchoring in marinas are meticulously inspected.

There are options for the boats, whose number reaches 100 thousand, to transfer their wastes to the city sewerage network instead of the sea.

The goal is to keep the seas clean. For this reason, the wastes of the boats anchored in the world-famous bays of the Aegean Sea are collected either by traveling boats or at fixed points and disposed of appropriately.

WASTE COLLECTED IN MARINAS

Fixed waste collection units installed in marinas, mobile waste collection boats empty the waste tanks of each boat.

INSPECTIONS CONTINUE AT SEA

Waste is sorted at temporary collection points. Boats that discharge their dirty water or garbage into the sea are fined in astronomical amounts. Inspections are carried out at sea by Provincial Directorates of Environment and Urbanization and Coast Guard teams.

Statistics show that 98 percent of seawater pollution is caused by terrestrial waste. For this reason, seawater pollution is constantly checked with samples taken by divers from the open sea in the Aegean Sea.

MEASURING THE AMOUNT OF OXYGEN IN THE SEA

The wastewater that enters the sewerage network of the city and is treated at the treatment plants is discharged into the sea from deep discharge points in the open sea. The samples taken by the divers are analyzed in authorized laboratories. While searching for the pollution rate, the oxygen amount in the water is mostly measured. The same measurements are made in the open sea.
