A feasibility report, an environmental management programme, as well as an environmental conservation programme are planned.
The project’s objective is to establish an environmental management plan for the lake, which will propose measures for pollution prevention and control. The result will be an integrated and sustainable action plan for Lake Sapanca with all possible funding sources.
The catchment area is 251 sq. km [km²]. The length is 16 km from east-west, and 5 km from north-south. The water surface area is 45 sq. km [km²], the maximum depth is 52 m.
The ADASU – Water and Sewage Administration has the status of an Administration of the Municipality and has been carrying out conservation work at Lake Sapanca since 2 years. Overall mission and goal of the organisation is to provide drinking water, to treat waste water, and manage sewage channel systems. ADASU is the authorised institution for the Sapanca Lake, which is the source of drinking water for Adpazari (it is the only lake in Turkey that has water of drinking quality). ADASU needs international support to develop an environmental management and conservation project. Therefore they are interested in getting in partnership with Living Lakes.
