The Kadıköy municipality distributes water to locals by sending four water tankers with well water. Some locals say the water is cut since Thursday. DHA PhotoLocals of Istanbul’s Kadıköy district held a protest after four days of water cuts, as the district municipality began distributing well water to locals Sept. 29.
A group of locals, wearing towels, held a protest in the Moda neighborhood of Kadıköy, located on the Anatolian side of the city. The water cut was reportedly caused by a breakdown in the water pipes located in the Söğütlüçeşme area.
