The Kyperounta Community president Mr. Giorgos Panayiotou said that “used water from the sewerage system of the village is dumped into the Kouris dam”. Therefore, the dam, which supplies Nicosia, Larnaca and Limassol, is being contaminated by the chemical waste produced by the local hospital.
Mr. Panayiotou also added that that the problem with the sewerage system exists from 2002 and remains unresolved for almost 15 years.
The Kouris dam supplies the water treatment plant in Limassol, which covers the demand of the city and 12 other municipalities and communities in the Western part of the island. Moreover, the water is provided for the factories which cover the Larnaca and Nicosia regions.
