Bodrum Water Project to Tuzla Area

Hi All

I own a property on FCC, at the moment our Management Company has Built & Connected a Desalination Plant to supply fresh water to our complex and also for Turquoise and Royal Heights. We did not approve or instruct them to do so, however while the concept and benifits are a good idea in itself, my own preference would be to connect to the Main Bodrum Water Project.

I would like to explore the possibility of bringing Mains Water to the Tuzla Area by sounding out and telling other Complex and Sites in the Tuzla Area that myself and a number of other owners on our complex are interested in joining or combining our resouces to bring Mains Water to the Tuzla Area.

We spend a lot of money on water and I do not see much benefit in spending owners money on a Sea Water Treatment Plant for 3 sites if we can connect to the mains supply at a cheaper rate.

Spending money and combining and connecting other complex's around the Tuzla Area would be a wiser and more beneficial project. There must be scores of Sites and small complex's around the area who could pool funds to make this possible in the short term.

Any help or advice to get this rolling would be appreciated.

Re: Bodrum Water Project to Tuzla Area

A word of caution, as someone who is connected to the main water supply, we frequently have several days with reduced pressure and despite having header tanks after three to four days with the water turned off can find it necessary to have water delivered by tanker to top up water tanks, maybe a constant supply of de salinated water is not such a bad thing.

Re: Bodrum Water Project to Tuzla Area

My understanding of the situation is that the lands surrounding the sites are not owned by the builder and legal permission is required from the land owner in order to bring in the necessary equipment to provide mains water. In this case the legalities have not been agreed. This could be costly especially if you have to pay the landowner for right of easement.

Re: Bodrum Water Project to Tuzla Area

Hi Guys thank you for your thoughts and comments.....I have done some further research and found this...... Bodrum Peninsula Urgent Water Project.

“According to the project, the water from Geyik Dam will be mixed with Çamköy water to be purified in a facility that will be built in Güvercinlik,” said Semayi Yaman, an official from TMMOB’s Bodrum branch.

This has to be a positive move, both fresh water and Sewage treatment.

Surely the local Mugla Municipality has the right to put Vesting Orders on private land to run pipelines to our area if it will improve the the lives of all citizens.

Re: Bodrum Water Project to Tuzla Area

As a Bodrum resident I would be very interested to know what water -saving measures there are in the Tuzla area developments as I believe these modern developments should be required to have them.Along wıth solar and wind power technology.

For instance- Are there stormwater and grey-water recycling points to go back onto the all those vast gardens and grounds?
Given that these areas are the newest large housing areas opened up, and at a time when there was severe water shortage, there should have been measures incorporated into the designs, along with de-salinisation plant ( which I applaud).
Bodrum Municipality was even considering a desalinisation plant at one point, as well as ballooning water in ( true) so short of water it was.

I once asked a person involved in the sales of one of the Tuzla luxury villa sites, what energy and water-saving measures were incorporated there , and if potential buyers ever asked about that feature. ( Usually from UK/ NL/ Germany- all water-rich countries)
No
No

Maybe the next generation of owners will ask those all important questions.

The present owners may have to understand that having a water plant dedicated to Tuzla sites has economic value..and they cannot expect to rely on the general water supply, even if they overcome the questions above.

It is not a limitless or cheap resource, as you seem to consider.
This is a dry Med climate with no significant rain for 6-8 months of the year
It was by sheer good luck that a heavy rainfall winter filled Geyik dam just when it was completed. We are all still living off that and Mumcular dam filling at the same time after running on empty for a number of years.

The water from Geyik and other points will be fiercely contested for agriculture/food as well as on the main Bodrum Peninsula- think- they estimated that there were close to 1 million people on the Peninsula at Bayram....
that is the sort of demand to expect in the future.

Re: Bodrum Water Project to Tuzla Area

Hi Chrisbobs

I am on the same platform as you, using renewable energy, solar panels etc has to the way forward, I have put all these questions and suggestions to our management company.

The Desalination Plant is welcomed, however it was never passed by the owners, they even raided our Bank Accounts and helped themselves to our money to help pay for it and the joke is.....they want to charge us money for the water that flows from it.

Had they approached all the Complex's in the area and asked for money to build it we would have jumped at the chance.....but no they decided to build it and charge us money and profit from the project. We have no way of knowing how much water is delivered or metered onto our complex, it is not transparent, it is open to abuse....for water into our properties we paid 54,000.00 TL , communal water 142,000.00TL.....almost 200K....now that is a lot of water, Turquoise and RH would be around the same...just over 1/2million per year in tankered water.

Water is being brought to the area under the Bodrum Water Project, it may take 2 or 3 years and it is not tankered.

I imagine the homeowners would be happy to pay 1/2 million Lira per year to have Mains Water, add on the other Sites in the region and before long we would have enough properties to cover the cost of the Loan from the Central Investment Bank 7 million dollars loan.

Our Electricity cost 250,000.00 Lira, not a solar panel in sight, no wind turbines. Why?
