On the coast of Şile, the color of the sea turned brown with the mud from the surrounding mines. Allegedly, some mines close to the region release the wastes accumulated in the waste storages into the streams, using the rainy weather as an excuse, by opening the tank covers. These wastes cause pollution of the sea as well as the pollution of the streams.
The color of the sea on the Alacalı coast of Istanbul Şile turned brown with the mud coming from the surrounding mines. Those who came to the beach, whose color changed with the muddy water flowing from the Sadıklı and Doğancılı streams, reacted to the situation.
Alacalı Village Headman Ferhat Çağlayan said, “Our problem for years, no solution could be found. Our streams are gone, our forests are gone, it’s time for the sea.”
Şile Alacalı Mahallesi changed the color of the sea with the mud and wastes mixed from the Sadıklı and Doğancılı streams. Allegedly, some mines close to the region release the wastes accumulated in the waste storages into the streams, using the rainy weather as an excuse, by opening the tank covers. These wastes cause pollution of the sea as well as the pollution of the streams.
DEFINITELY ANXIOUS, THEY CONTINUE TO GO TO THE SEA
With the increase in air temperatures, holidaymakers do not neglect to swim in the sea. Some said that they were nervous and did not go into the sea, while others said that they were overwhelmed by the hot weather and the pandemic and stated that they would go into the sea. According to the information obtained from the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, samples were taken from the region and sent for examination. Work continues in the area.”
“NO PRECAUTION HAS BEEN TAKEN TO THESE MININES FOR YEARS”
Saying that they have been experiencing the same problem for years and that he wants a solution as soon as possible, Alacalı Village Headman Ferhat Çağlayan said:
“Our problem is that the sludge, which originates from the mines in the upper parts of our village and accumulates in the stream beds, descends to the sea with rain and flood waters. Our problem for years, we could not find a solution. Our streams are gone, our forests are gone, it’s time for the sea. For years, no action has been taken in these mines.”
Muhtar Ferhat Çağlayan, who examined the Doğancılı creek where the factories and quarries left their wastes, said, “This is Doğancılı creek. There is a creek on the other side. We are between two streams. The mines in the upper parts of the village and the mud accumulated by the silica sand factories brought this stream to this state.”
When the stream rises with rain water, these muds go down to the sea as they are. The color of the sea is also two colors for this reason. They take advantage of a small rain and make the sea like this because the accumulated waters clear their way.”
