In order to provide a permanent and sustainable solution to the drinking water problem in the districts most affected by the earthquake, TOKTUT is installing water treatment plants in container cities. Within the scope of the project, clean drinking water needs of earthquake victims will be met 24/7 by placing treatment systems inside special closed structures in container cities located in three districts selected as pilot regions in the earthquake zone.
Water is the Most Basic Need in the Summer Heat
Mains water is not potable throughout Turkey and therefore in the earthquake zone. Earthquake victims living in container cities obtain drinking water from plastic bottles distributed by social workers and aid organizations. However, bottled water distribution is costly, laborious and environmentally harmful in terms of plastic waste.
The most appropriate and sustainable solution is to have treatment systems in each container city that produce drinking water on-site.
TOKTUT has started to implement practical, applicable and sustainable water treatment solutions using technical knowledge.
With the sponsorship of companies and grant support from corporate stakeholders, the project aims to build a clean water network throughout the earthquake zone by the end of the year and the service team will contribute to water safety by performing regular checks as well as periodic maintenance.
