TRNC water reserve could dry by August

Municipalities head in TRNC alert that the country’s water reservoir could dry by August.  

It is reported that the current level in the countries reservoir is currently at 9.3 million cubic meters .It was advised that the level of the water has  drastically decreased within the last two months.

In January 2020 it was reported that the undersea pipeline that runs from Anamur Turkey to Cyprus was damaged so no water has been piped in since then and the level of the water is currently at the lowest level since October 2015 .

Mr Levent Yildirim the spokesperson for Turkish Water Works Authority this week said an agreement was reached and it is yet to be signed for the work to commence .He however said he expects the contract to be signed mid June so that works on the pipeline can begin .

There is currently work at Mersin port to construct a factory that will produce pipe as there is need for 10 types of HDPE 100 that measure 500m in length he added .

He also said that the Covid -19 and weather conditions were considered in the process of crafting a construction plan .
Appropriate measures were taken to make sure that the pipe works are complete before the water runs out in the country .

Guzelyurk Mayor and Head of Cyprus Turkish Municipalities said he was panicked by the statement from Mr Ozcinar .

The Prime Minister of TRNC Mr Ersin Tatar said he did not want think about the fate if the water supply from Turkey does not resume by end of July .

It is believed by municipal authorities that consumers are expected to use around 5 million cubic meters of water in a month which could result in the country’s reservoir empty by August because of increasing temperature levels that will lead to high evaporation rates and also increased usage of water during the summer period .

Calls have been made to the government to have swift arrangements to discuss the plan of letting municipalities to use local reservoirs to curb the water shortage problem.
