    The protection of water from pollution is of great importance, especially today that we are suffering from water shortages as a result of prolonged drought, the Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment Michalis Polynikis underlined on Wednesday.

    Speaking at the opening of the 2nd European Conference on the Environmental Applications of Advanced Oxidation Processes, organised by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the University of Cyprus, along with the Technical University of Crete and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Polynikis said that pollution control should be continuous and rigorous so as to ensure that the scarce and valuable water is available in such quality that does not jeopardize public health, the fauna, the flora and the environment in general.

    A well protected environment from pollution ensures the best quality of our water and of our soil he added.

    As Polynikis noted, by implementing the Law on the Control of Pollution of Water and Soil and the Law on the Protection and Management of Water, Cyprus is committed to reducing and controlling the pollution of water and soil, to improve and protect natural water resources and to improve the health and the welfare of the population.
