Thanks to the circulation channel to be opened on the north axis by the Metropolitan Municipality, the amount and circulation of clean water entering the bay along the Gediz Delta Wetland area will accelerate and the water quality and ecological diversity will increase by accelerating the ecological more sensitive northern shores.
The EIA Report of the project was delivered to the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization EIA Permission and Inspection General Directorate in April 2013. The first meeting of the Review and Evaluation Board was held in June 2013. The process has prolonged due to some deficiencies. The second meeting took place in June 2016.

A tender will be held for the development of natural life islands, development plans and implementation projects in the project.
Metropolitan Municipality officials aimed to hold tenders towards the end of the year. Within the scope of these tenders, considering the manufacturing time of the pipes and pumps, their assembly on the sea and land, and the preparation processes of the recovery area, screening operations can begin in autumn 2017.

Some of the scanned material will be used as filling material in the 2nd Section Container Terminal Site. The remaining materials will be dried for recycling purposes at the Çiğli Wastewater Treatment Plant and will be evaluated as garbage storage areas, top cover material in quarries, filling and ground improvement materials in the park gardens and construction industry. In addition, this scanned material will be used in the creation of 2 natural islands determined on the northern axis of the gulf.
