Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Cyprus


Cyprus is the largest island in the Eastern Mediterranean with an area of 9,250 square kilometers (km2). The main features of the island's topography include two mountain ranges, the Kyrenia in the north, which rises to 1,024 meters (m), and the Troodos in the center, rising to 1,951 meters. Between these two main mountain ranges lies a wide plain, the Mesaoria Plain, which rises from sea level to about 325 meters. Between the two mountain ranges and the sea there are narrow fertile coastal plains.

The area of the country currently under government control, to which this country profile and the accompanying tables will refer unless otherwise stated, is about 5,807 km2. The cultivable area is estimated at 165,433 hectares (ha), which is 28% of the total area under government control. In 1994, cultivated land amounted to 111,649 ha, of which 69,509 ha consisted of annual crops and 42,140 ha consisted of permanent crops. Most land is private. There are 51,300 farm holdings and according to the 1994 Census of Agriculture, the average holding size is 3.5 ha divided into 4.5 parcels of land.

Water resources
A water balance cannot be easily calculated for the government-controlled area of Cyprus. A water balance for the whole island, however, indicates 900 million m3/year of renewable water resources. Surface runoff is estimated to represent about 830 million m3/year. The natural aquifer recharge is estimated at 300 million m3, of which about 70 million m3 flows to the sea and 100 million m3 emerges from springs.
There are 14 main rivers, none of which provides perennial flow. The source of water for these rivers originates in the Troodos Mountains. The main groundwater aquifers are the Western Mesaoria (Morphou), Kokkinochoria (South-eastern and Eastern Mesaoria) and the Akrotiri. Smaller aquifers exist in other parts of the country.
Spring water and groundwater were the first target of water resources development. Traditionally this water was cheap and easy to develop by individual farmers or farmers' Irrigation Divisions or Associations. In the former case the farmers develop the springs or tubewells on an individual basis, whilst in the latter case water resources are developed by a group of farmers who are then eligible for a government subsidy for the capital expenditure. In both cases a government permit is required prior to initiation of any water work. Normally these schemes are small and they cover 1 to 3 ha, although larger schemes have also been developed in recent years.

The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.
