A malfunction at the Geçitköy Pumping Station has led to water shortages in North  Cyprus, Yeniduzen reports.

Due to the lack of necessary maintenance on local dams, the water demand in the north of the island, which relies on  water piped undersea from Turkey, cannot be met due to the malfunction.

In a written statement, the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources announced that water cuts would occur because of a malfunction at the Geçitköy Pumping Station as part of the Water Supply Project.

The ministry stated that during the repair work, water could not be supplied to North Cyprus.

The statement included: “Until the malfunction is resolved, water will be sourced from our local drinking and utility water supplies. During this period, it is crucial for our citizens to use water consciously and sparingly. Necessary information will be provided to our citizens and municipalities through the press during this process“.
