Too Many Licences for Wells Granted

Over the last five years, licences were granted for a total of 153 wells in the districts of Guzelyurt and Lefke. Forty-two of these licences were for wells in the village of Yeşiltepe.

Farmers in Yeşiltepe have complained that licenses for wells were distributed last year for the sake of political gain and as a result the salinity level of the water in the area has increased. The producers added that for this reason, their production of potatoes and watermelon has been reduced.
