New record as water streams into island’s dams

A total of 1.9 million cubic metres of water has flowed into the island’s dams over the past 24-hours, setting up a new record.

Water levels in the island’s dams were now at 24.8% (72.144.000 million cubic meters) of capacity. Speaking to the Cyprus News Agency, the director of the Water Development Department Andreas Manoli said that the continuous of water into the dams was expected to bring levels on par with 2016 which stood at 37.6% (109,226.000 million cubic meters).

Manoli estimates that the island’s needs would be covered with dams at 40%-50% of capacity, noting that the melting snow would contribute to the flow of water into the dams.
