Diyarbakir Metropolitan Municipality Water and Sewerage Administration (DISKI) General Directorate has started work for the historical Zerzevan Castle to have drinking water.
DISKI has prepared a project for the Zerzevan Castle, which was used as a border garrison during the Roman Empire and included in the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List in 2020, to have drinking water.
Within the scope of the project, DISKI started its studies to supply water for the Zerzevan Castle, which will host international sky observation festivals.
Fırat Tutşi, General Manager of DISKI, said that for the supply of drinking water, Zerzevan Castle Archaeological Excavation Head Assoc. Dr. Aytaç Coşkun and TÜBİTAK officials met and consulted.
Stating that they have created alternative plans to solve the water problem of Zerzevan Castle, Tutşi stated that they will implement the most appropriate project without damaging the historical area after the survey and feasibility studies they will do.
Noting that DISKI will fulfill its duty with great devotion, Tutsi said:
“We will solve the water problem so that the Zerzevan Castle, which is visited by thousands of local and foreign tourists, carries the value it deserves even higher. The historical area will have clean water again.”
