DSİ attaches great importance to the protection of nature and

independently and in collaboration with other related governmental and non-governmental
organizations. DSİ also provides technical and financial support to rescue our historical and
archeological heritage for the generations of the future. In this context, historical and archeological
heritage studies of Ilısu Dam & HEPP Project and Yortanlı Dam Project have been conducted by
DSI in collaboration with Cultural and Tourism Ministry.
