Adaköy Spring: Vital Water for Beyşehir Lake

Adaköy Spring: Vital Water for Beyşehir Lake

In the Beyşehir district of Konya, Adaköy Spring and Dam Reservoir, one of the most important water sources that also feeds Beyşehir Lake, which dries up in autumn, came to life with the spring rains.

 

The snow and rain that fell especially in March and April this year revived the Adaköy Spring and Dam Reservoir, located at the entrance of the Adaköy neighborhood in Beyşehir, which completely dried up last year as it did in the autumn season. The artificial waterfalls in the spring that began to flow again as the water filled up created colorful images. The spring and dam reservoir, which is also one of the most important water sources that feed Beyşehir Lake and is one of the places that attract numerous visitors in every season due to its natural beauty that never gets old, includes the vertical watermill. The water source caused disappointment among the local residents and visitors during the previous autumn period, as it completely dried up due to insufficient rainfall.

 

Büyükkafalı emphasized that Adaköy Spring and Dam Reservoir is also one of the most important water sources that feed Beyşehir Lake, saying "I see this place as the only water source without a dam in front of Beyşehir Lake. The spring here was a flowing stream in every season. It has been drying up for two years, but it starts flowing again in the spring season, albeit not as much. Hopefully, this water flow will continue throughout the summer because this is an important water source where endemic fish species also live. Many fish species that we don't see elsewhere thrive here. The presence of an old mill here makes it even more interesting. Additionally, the artificial waterfalls create beautiful views when they meet with the water, making this place a real attraction. People come here to take photos, relieve stress and relax. The Storks Hill, which is right next to the spring and dam reservoir, makes it even more appealing."
