Kalavasos reservoir overflows

Kalavasos reservoir

Kalavasos reservoir overflowed on Friday morning, the eleventh to do so this year. This time last year, it was just 11.9 per cent full.

The reservoir is the second biggest of the eight in the southern conveyor project, with a capacity of 17 million cubic metres (MCM). It has a height of 60 metres and is 428 metres long.

The largest is Kouris, 75 per cent of which is currently filled with water. Another two reservoirs of the project, Germasoyia and Polemidia, overflowed earlier this month.

Asprokremmos, the second largest reservoir in all of Cyprus, overflowed earlier this month. The last time it was full was in 2012.

On average, reservoirs are at 83 per cent of capacity compared to 26.7 per cent in 2018.
