Heavy rainfall in recent days sparks imminent overflow of dams

The overflow of Asprokremmos dam – the island’s second largest – is imminent after the recent heavy rainfall with smaller ones already reaching full capacity.

And this means that no water cuts or restrictions should be expected in 2022, Philenews reports.

In Paphos district alone, apart from the Asprokremmos state of play, two smaller ones have already overflowed – those of Argaka and Pomos.

As of Friday, Paphos district’s dams recorded the following percentages in water flow capacity compared to the same period last year:
