25 May 2021 by Local Press Report

The deputy director of Turkey’s General Directorate of State Hydraulic Works has banned the saying “Sudan Ucuz,” which means “cheaper than water,” from being used inhouse, drawing attention to climate change. “This saying is now history here. Water is more expensive than anything and, in fact, everything,” commented Kaya Yıldız. Stressing on climate change and global warming, Yıldız said he believes that during such an alarming time, water should not be depicted as something worthless. “Water is everything,” he said.
