Village people from the village to the nature or the forest until the damage is not a single crime committed to the Yanık village headman Sibel Baykal said, ini This is the green, charming village you see is founded in 1864. People have tried to preserve nature and so far they have not committed a single crime that would harm nature or forest. However, we heard that 40 is being re-activated within the scope of the High-Speed Train project, which was closed for the settlement of the people years ago. We were very upset when we heard that. As you can see, we have water reservoirs and water resources here. The orchards are in a zero position in the quarry and the place you see at the bottom is completely a settlement. Meyve
He said that the people of the village live with agriculture and fruit growing. Iğ The forest state conservation forest behind us. The fact that the quarry was being built in such a place shocked us.

Chamber of City Planners Sakarya Representative Oya Arapoglu stated that the quarry planned to be opened is protected by 1 / 100 thousand scale Sakarya province plan and later 1 / 25 thousand scale Sapanca Lake Conservation Development Plan.
Arapoğlu stated that they were in the area where the quarry was closed years ago but that they are now in the region where the quarry is requested to be reopened. Söz Sapanca Lake in this region is used as drinking water basin and Sapanca Lake is in the protection area. And in the 1 / 100 thousand scale Sakarya province plan and later in the 1 / 25 thousand scale Sapanca Lake Conservation Development Plan, these areas were gradually separated as protection area.

A citizen who previously worked at the quarry said: çalış The gallery has to be excavated here for the supply of stone.

Once a place to be protected by the drinking water basin and watershed protection measures. Moreover, we have not succeeded to this day. Because normally you cannot do anything in the first protection zone around the drinking water basins. Neither settlement nor agriculture or anything else should not be done. These types of drinking water basins, which can be used as drinking water directly, are already in the world. Bu
Stating that Sapanca is one of them, Gümrükçüoğlu concluded his words as follows:: It is certain that the amount of dust will be higher than the quarry in the region. You can't get it out of there without blasting. The resulting dust will harm both the lake and the people living there, the nature, the forest, other creatures, and the soil. To think about the opening of a quarry in a place like Sapanca. Then it will be said that no stone will not be used, stone will not be removed from any place. Of course it can be taken from somewhere, but to bring it to the cheapest at the closest point, ignoring the nature, ignoring the people there, despite the people living there, it is very wrong to plan to do this and the license to do it.
