The development of the water sources since the independence of Cyprus in 1960, has been impressive if compared with other countries of this size and development level. This can be proven with the existence of the 105 dams and water reservoirs that have been built. The total capacity that these dams can withhold is about 304, 7 million tonnes of cubical metres of water.
Cyprus dams are located in various locations across the island such as in the Paphos district, Limassol district, Larnaca district, Nicosia district and Famagusta district.
