Istanbul Water and Sewerage Administration (İSKİ) stated that the city's water consumption has reached a record high on June 2 with 3.045 million cubic meters consumed throughout the day.
In a statement released by İSKİ on Friday, the increase in consumption was related with increasing temperatures along with not complying with basic water saving measures.
The figures are not alarming for this season as latest average storage level throughout Istanbul's dams is currently at 78 percent. However, when dry winters and springs are concerned, it is a fact that Istanbulites need to be more economical in water consumption.
The figures released by İSKİ showed that while the city's population has increased by 16 percent over the last 10 years, the water consumption has increased by 37 percent in the same period.
The average daily consumption of Istanbul's 12.57 million population was 2.209 million cubic meters in 2007, while this number has increased to 3 million cubic meters in 2016 for a population of 14.65 million.
