WARNING FROM METEOROLOGIST: STATE OF EMERGENCY MUST BE DECLARED IN TURKEY

A meteorologist who says that the drought in Turkey increases its impact every day, Doctor in Turkey, ” we have already started to suffer from water shortages. We’re heading for a desert climate. We have to be careful from the beginning, use the waters very carefully. For this reason, a state of emergency should be declared in Turkey regarding the drought,” he said.

A meteorologist who evaluates the maps on which meteorological drought measurements are made, published by the General Directorate of Meteorology after temperature and precipitation reports, Dr, “Basra low pressure is effective in the summer months. It causes the scorching temperature to increase. The wind also becomes strong, and the Earth dries. It also accelerates the development of drought. Turkey, unfortunately, began to experience drought. It’ll take a long time, but we’re heading for a desert climate. We’re already running out of water. The occupancy of the dams in Istanbul is 70 percent, but will gradually decrease. For this reason, a state of emergency should be declared in Turkey regarding the drought,” he said.

TURKEY USE WATER HORRIBLY

A doctor who emphasizes that you should be careful, “we must use the waters very carefully. We must also inform the citizens. The municipality must make announcements in this direction on the streets of the district. 70 percent of the water is used in agriculture, we have to be careful. The drought is coming and the groundwater is starting to run out,” he said.

.
WE MUST MANAGE THE WATER WELL

Turkey has lost as much wetland as the Marmara Sea in the last 50 years, said Dr. “we still continue to lose. The state is taking precautions, but the public must also be conscious. NGOs need to focus on drought and work. We have to manage the water very well. We have to have 8-10 years of planning on this issue,” he said.

.
TURKEY DOES NOT USE WATER EFFECTIVELY IN AGRICULTURE

A doctor who said that Turkey should be declared a disaster zone, ” because we spend the summer completely arid. Therefore, farmers are harmed. We do not use water effectively in agriculture. Smart irrigation systems need to be built. The issue is that there is almost no wheat production in the Central Anatolia region this year. And that hurts the country. Once a disaster zone is declared, it will bring benefits in solving the drought. People will be more conscious. Everyone, including children, needs to use water consciously. In schools, children should also be taught about the correct use of water,” he said.

.
HEAVY RAINS AND TEMPERATURES ARE COMING

Salt Lake, Sapanca lake, such as important points of the water recalls that the Dr, “such important lakes need to be protected. Artesians in the gardens of summer cottages are damaging the groundwater, it is necessary to remove or impose restrictions. If we don’t take precautions, bad days await us. The equator is moving north, which means we’re heading for desertification. The tropical climate will prevail, strong and sudden rains, temperatures will be seen. In this way, it will negatively affect the soil as well as all living things,” he said.

.
WE MUST BUILD WATER CISTERNS IN THE GARDENS OF BUILDINGS

In order to prevent the drought, especially in Istanbul, we need as many dams as today, “in order to ensure this, we must make water cisterns in accordance with the square meters of the gardens of the newly built buildings. So we need tanks to store rainwater. Residents of the building can take advantage of the water in the warehouse when watering the garden. We can recycle the wastewater. There are 4 million vehicles in Istanbul, if it rains, these vehicles need to be washed. We have to turn the water back,” was said.
