Water is the first source of the life and it has became important issue in living area for all creatures. The most of communicable diseases transmit via waste water. The importance of water and diseases can be caused from it has became perceived only in the 150 years. World Health Organization (WHO) estimates about %80 diseases of developing countries that is connected from water.

Undoubtfully, important issue is protected, used and managed of our available potable water sources. And our target is; to submit our sources for public use productivly and not to leave lost or undrinkable sources but flowing water from in a loud fountains.

And the same time, waste water should be managed very controlled for protection of human and continuing environmental health and natural life. Studies in this area make progress rapidly with development technology in our country and especially in the river basins carry into effect projects with necessary measures against pollution with our Action Plan.

I consider as mission of all us to convey ‘’Water – Life Source’’ without pollution and is the most important heritage for our future generations.
