Taking advantage of the lockdown periods due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Beşiktaş Municipality and the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality have added another one to the works they have been carrying out in cooperation. Utilizing modern devices, the teams of the İSTAÇ A.Ş. company, an affiliate of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, cleaned the sea surface in Ortaköy which was polluted due to strong southwester.
Calling on citizens through his social media account with regards to the efforts performed, the Beşiktaş Mayor Mr. Rıza Akpolat said: “Sometimes pollution may occur on the shores of Istanbul due to southwester storms. If you view such a thing, please notify the “White Desk” unit of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. The teams of the İSTAÇ clean the sea surface on a regular basis using modern devices".
During his visit to Beşiktaş some days ago to view the joint works and receive information from our Mayor Rıza Akpolat, the Mayor of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Mr. Ekrem İmamoğlu emphasized that joint works will continue without interruption.
The chronic infrastructure problem long neglected in Beşiktaş was also solved a short while ago by the İSKİ, another affiliate of the Metropolitan Municipality, responsible for water and sewerage services.
