Abstract [en]

This report is about the wastewater treatment problem concerning coastal tourist areas in the Mediterranean conditions and analyses my on site observations and field surveys, which were carried out in Turkey. First, I concentrated a lot on review of literature trying to understand the common opinions and the different views of idea in different literature material. Next I performed institutional preliminary field surveys in Ankara visiting subject-related ministries, planing and financial state organizations. Later I went on my investigations in Kusadasi, which is a characteristic coastal tourist town, actually one of the biggest, located at the Aegean coasts in the Western Anatolia. In the region I carried out reality based observations choosing characteristic tourist foundations as typical wastewater sources. As a result of my contacts with the regional official institutions I could also obtain information and measurement results dealing with the hygienic quality of the coastal bathing waters in the area. Results showed that wastewater treatment problems arising in Kusadasi had technological, operational, political and institutional sources, which are strongly respective to each other in my opinion.
