Residents of a village in the central Turkish province of Aksaray have appealed to authorities to renew their water network after tadpoles and worms were detected in the tap water.
Villagers in Kutlu say pipes supplying water to the village were installed two decades ago and with the pipes wearing out, tadpoles and worms were sighted when they turned on their taps. Villagers complaining of the long bureaucratic process for the replacement of the water supply turned to installing filters to no avail. Village headman Ayhan Ölmez said he petitioned for the replacement of the pipes but the water authority told him the pipeline had an expiration date and would not be replaced before it expires. İsmail Tekeli, a villager, said they did not drink the water but needed it for equipment like the dishwasher and washing machines. "I installed a filter on the pipe at home but I still find worms, tadpoles and insects even after I clean up the filter a couple of times every week," he says. Aksaray Governor Şeref Ataklı said villagers had only officially complained about the burst pipes and did not notify them about worms and tadpoles. "This is unacceptable. We will find a solution," he said.
