Transportation of the water from Turkey to Northern Cyprus via underwater pipeline will start within 70 working days. This event will be especially important, given the very low level of water in the last 10 years in the reservoirs of Northern Cyprus. This year, the country is experiencing a severe drought, which has left 17 reservoirs completely dried out. Despite the fact that the hottest days of the summer are over, the heavy rains in North Cyprus are still needed.
Once the water from Turkey will be delivered, it will fill the reservoir at Gecitkoy at the rate of 2.38 m3 per second. For a complete filling of the reservoir two months will be needed.
