Completed in two months
After two months of work carried out by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality IZSU General Directorate on the Manda Stream, pollution flow to the Gulf was prevented and a new attraction center was brought to the city. In order to solve the problem of pollution and odor caused by the stagnant waters accumulating in the stream bed during the dry seasons, circulation pumps were installed from the point where Manda Stream meets the bay. Clean water taken from the sea is given to the stream through a 1-kilometer pipeline.
