Waters muddied further

Waters muddied further

Earlier last week, we reported to readers the  problem of the contaminated water problems in Nicosia areas.

Distressed citizens turned to tank water supplies and stopped using mains water completely. Inevitably the price of transported water has increased with incidents where the price has risen from 10 TL per tonne to 25 TL. There are also reports of a number of rogue operators selling water with questionable quality in the area.

The local authorities have now admitted contamination of mains water with sewage in some areas.

Thanks to the unnamed reader who sent in the image above.
