CHAPTER V - DOMESTIC WATER SUPPLY
The approximate total length of transmission pipeline, including concrete, ductile, steel and glass-
reinforced pipe (GRP) with different diameters has reached 2.112 km since 1968. Water supply
projects developed by DSİ have met 1/3 of domestic and industrial water consumption
requirements so far.
As per the Law No.167–the “Law as to Groundwater Resources”, groundwater permission is to
be obtained by applying to DSİ General Directorate if well depths are greater than 10m depth. In
this context, water supply is obtained from groundwater for the cities in which there is no water
supply system from surface water sources or surface water is not enough to meet the demand.
5.3. Water Supply Projects in the Investment Program
The Law stipulates that DSİ could give priority to realize waste water treatment plants on the
grounds of health and environment considerations. According to the action plan prepared in
2010 for 81 provinces; the supplied water amount will be enough for;
Long term (2024-2040) in 36 provinces,
Middle term in 26 provinces (2016-2023),
Water scarcity is anticipated to occur in 10 provinces in short term (2013-2015) and
Water scarcity will occur in 9 provinces between the years (2010-2012) and it is also estimated
that emergency drinking water supply might be necessary therefore related works are in progress.
According to the action plan prepared for county towns, population of which are above 50,000;
the supplied water amount will be enough for 66 county towns;
Long term (2024-2040) in 35 county towns,
Middle term in 14 county towns (2016-2023),
Water scarcity is anticipated to occur in 14 county towns in short term (2013-2015), and
Water scarcity will occur in 3 county towns (Cizre-Şırnak, Ergani-Diyarbakır, Yüksekova–
Hakkari) between the years (2010-2012) and it is also estimated that emergency drinking water
supply might be necessary therefore related works are in progress.
