To the southeast of the Argaka community in the Paphos district, is the dam known as Argaka-Makounda.

This dam is the one that sends water to all the agricultural pieces of land in Argaka. It is a dam which was built in 1964, it has a height of 41 metres and a capacity of 990 thousand cubical metres.
