Greeks strike against public sector cuts, protests gather steam

THE ISLAND’S largest dam Kouris has overflowed for the second time in its history.

The dam, situated northwest of Limassol, started overflowing on Friday night, reaching its peak yesterday. The 115 million cubic metres capacity dam first overflowed in 2004, 16 years after its construction.

The Water Development Department controlled the outflow of two million cubic metres of water from the dam, to help enrich the Akrotiri aquifer on the southern coast.

Limassol Bishop Athanasios and Agriculture Minister Sophoclis Aletraris yesterday attended a small ceremony at the dam to mark the occasion.
