Yeşilırmak River Basin ranks 3rd in the 25 river basins in terms of surface area across the country. In this huge land area, agricultural, industrial and animal feeding activities are the most significant sectors for the socio-economic progress especially in the last few decades. Due to the rapid increase in this activities and legal requirements arised from Water Framework Directive (WFD) , water quality deterioration risk sourced from micropollutants has been gradually gaining more significance. In line with this approach, innovative sampling methods are needed to be performed more sensitive monitoring studies in aquatic environments and also in Yeşilırmak River Basin. In this case study, sampling has been performed by semipermeable membrane devices (SPMD) to have more sensitive results in detection of Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and Organochlorine pesticides (OCL) in the basin. The aim of the design of SPMDs is to sample the organic contaminants dissolved in the water environment with the help of the triolein, inspired by the accumulation of oily tissue in the organisms which is an innovative solution for low concentrations.
