Following the recent rainstorms that filled the reservoirs in Cyprus to almost fifty percent capacity, the Agriculture Minister announced that water restrictions on the island have now ended. Despite the fact that the island’s reservoirs are not full, the government feels that they can manage the water situation as long as:
- “…that the desalination plants don’t break down, that it continues to rain and that water is not wasted, either through domestic users or leakage.”
This will certainly make the summer more pleasant on the island, even though the hotels have not generally been affected. It does sound though like there will be more vegetation to deal with in the fields.
