CYPRUS: January rain ses largest ever monthly inflow into dams.

The biggest ever inflow of water in a month was recorded during January this year with the volume entering dams peaking at 103.4 million cubic meters.

This beats the previous biggest inflow recorded in 2012 with an inflow of 92.6 million cubic meters of water within a month.

Water inflow in Cyprus dams during the last three days has reached 10.5 million cubic meters, Water Development Department official Fedros Roussis has told the Cyprus News Agency (CNA).

He said total dam capacity now stood at 51.8% and the total water reservoirs amounted to 150.8 million cubic meters.

On the same day last year, the dam capacity was at a worryingly-low 15%, with 43.4 million cubic meters of water in all damns, most of which were practically empty.

Yermasoyia dam, in Limassol, which overflowed on Sunday, at this time last year was down to 3.8% of capacity, Roussis said.
