İBB President Ekrem İmamoğlu continued to examine the institution's services on-site during the curfews he spent in the entire city's home. İmamoğlu, who made the examinations at the Eyüpsultan facility that will carry the "muddy" of Haliç's mud, said, "This process will ensure the sustainable cleaning of the Golden Horn. Golden Horn is one of the most special and beautiful areas of Istanbul, which should be looked like a baby. It is a valuable geography that the world defines as 'The Horn of Gold'. Today, we are on the day of Haliç's permanent service as a process that protects the environment but is also sustainable. ” Imamoglu opened the 30rd Ahmet Fountain in Sultanahmet, which has not flowed water for about 3 years, to the use of citizens.
Ekrem İmamoğlu, the Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (İBB), moved to Eyüpsultan after his investigations at the Kiptaş Van Blocks in Büyük İstanbul Bus Terminal and Beyoğlu Piyalepaşa District. Having examined the ISKI Bottom Sludge Dewatering Facility in Gümüşsuyu District, İmamoğlu received information from İSKİ General Manager Raif Mermutlu and İSTAÇ General Manager Mustafa Canlı. The authorities, who explained the works carried out in Haliç to İmamoğlu through examples, stated that they prevented the fish nests from being damaged during the bottom screening.
“THE MUD WILL BE DRYED, WILL BE MOVED TO THE WEAVING ZONE”
According to the statements of Mermutlu and Canlı, the system will work as follows: In the works to be carried out by İSKİ and İSTAÇ, the water carried by the stream waters coming from Alibeyköy and Kağıthane will be scanned with a dredging vessel known as “Dregder”. The scanned mud will be pumped to the “Dewatering Facility” built on the edge of the Golden Horn. Here, the waste that is purified from water and made dry will be transported to excavation areas. In this way, transportation costs will decrease, there will be no odor, storage problems will be eliminated, and the water of the Golden Horn will be more clear and wavy with the bottom screening.
“COMMON WORKING OF THE TWO MUNICIPALITIES INSTITUTE IS VALUABLE”
Watching the launch of the bottom dredging vessel called “Dregder”, İmamoğlu evaluated the study trip with these words: “The process of the bottom mud in the Golden Horn is the subject of many years. The process to be carried out here is to collect the bottom sludge systematically, with a more mechanical and automatic setup. The mud in the Golden Horn will be transferred here with the bottom screening vehicle, pumping system, and in a way, sea water and mud will be separated. It will be possible to transport that mud more easily. This process will ensure the sustainable cleaning of the Golden Horn. The Golden Horn is entrusted to us. One of the most special and beautiful areas of Istanbul, which should be looked like a baby. It is a valuable geography that the world defines as 'The Horn of Gold'. It is very valuable for us that İSTAÇ provides services to this work owned by İSKİ and that two municipal institutions manage processes in solidarity. Today, we are on the day of Haliç's permanent service as a process that protects the environment but is also sustainable. This is the purpose of getting together. We are very happy."
“PROUD FOR US”
“4 thousand tons of mud will be removed in 280 years. As far as we can see on the map, we will have solved almost 70-75 percent of the mud deposit, which now extends to the Golden Horn Bridge. This will continue. We are designing this in the 4-year service period, but this will continue. Also here, İSTAÇ works on the possibility of increasing this with double shifts. It is nice to be systematic, sustainable and technology native. Particularly separation processes inside. The local company is a major complement to the mechanical part here. It is also proud of us to analyze the business with such solidarity. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the past and present. ”
55 DRINKABLE WATER WILL FLOW WITHOUT HISTORICAL FOUNTAIN
After Eyüpsultan, İmamoğlu turned his route to Eminönü. Imamoğlu, who got out of his vehicle in front of the New Mosque, made examinations on the streets and streets of the historical peninsula that was empty due to the curfew. Imamoğlu's last stop during the day was the historical 30rd Ahmet Fountain in Sultanahmet Square, which has been running water for nearly 3 years. Imamoglu received information from the General Manager Raif Mermutlu about the historical fountain where İSKİ connected water years later. Mermutlu gave the good news that they will bring a total of 23 historical fountains in different parts of the city, 55 of which are in restoration. İmamoğlu, who washed his face in the fountain that got into the water, also chatted with Nevin Taş, Head of the Cankurtaran District, which included the historical structure, while receiving information from the authorities. Stating that his childhood passed in the region, Taş shared the information that the water of the historical fountain has not flowed for about 30 years. İmamoğlu told Taş, “Let us distribute sherbet here under your leadership. It has been applied before. Let our ecdema be left by the fountain that does not flow. Everybody benefit from it. Let the tourists drink. We will also announce that there is potable water. I hope tomorrow will be normal these days and we will put promotional brochures in hotels ”.
Imamoglu completed the Historical Peninsula study in Sarayburnu by walking through Gülhane Park.
