The northeast of Cyprus will be without water for three days between Tuesday and Thursday as repairs are made to a burst pipe.

Tarkan Ceki, the head of the north’s water board, explained to the Cyprus Mail that a pipe had burst near the village of Knodara during works to link Mesaoria’s irrigation system to the supply of water coming to the north from Turkey.

As a result, there will be no water supply to any village between the villages of Petra tou Digeni and Rizokarpaso until Friday while repairs are carried out.

The north’s water board said water will be provided to the regions from local sources, and encouraged people to use water “consciously and economically” until repairs are complete.
