[01] Government lifts all restrictions on water supply

Cyprus President Mr Glafcos Clerides announced the lifting of all restrictions on water supply at a press conference held at the Presidential Palace yesterday.

"It is with special satisfaction that the government today announces the solution of a problem that has troubled the country for decades. From today the water cuts regime is finally terminated. From today every household in every part of the government-controlled areas of Cyprus will have a continuous, 24-hour supply of water," he stated.

President Clerides said that the water shortage problem has been solved due to the government's effective policy on the water issue and especially its desalination programme.

He explained that the new desalination plant built near Larnaca Airport, which is the largest project in this field, along with the plant in Dhekelia, will produce 33 million cubic metres of water a year. This quantity, together with the 36 million cubic metres of water that exists in dams, constitutes a safe quantity that enables the government to completely lift restrictions.

"With the construction of the desalination units in Limassol and Famagusta, which will be completed in the year 2002, Cyprus will have solved the problem of drinking water for many, many years", he added.

President Clerides also said the government is examining the possibility of constructing additional desalination plants to serve the agricultural field, along with other measures such as the recycling of sewage water and the use of modern watering systems.
