THE Nicosia Water Board (NWB) has announced that, due to maintenance on the network, it would implement alternate night-time cuts to the capital’s water supply over the coming days, starting Thursday night.
In a statement, the NWB “informs its customers that, due to restricted amounts of water supplied by the Water Development Department, is required to implement water cuts until the malfunction is restored.”
Water supply will be cut off during the night, from 5pm to 7am the next day, on alternate days for a period of a few days.
Meanwhile, the NWB reasserted its plea for water conservation.
“The board reminds all customers that water is the most valuable commodity and should not be wasted,” the statement read. “Based on relevant legislation, usage of drinking water for washing cars, sidewalks, porches and fences is forbidden.”
“The Board apologises for any inconvenience caused to its customers,” the statement concluded.
