The story is on the Famagusta Gazette web page.

...if we are talking about the same article, no one is drinking that water, only that it has been demonstrated that this water could flow, to Famagusta.

One of the caveats is that this private company will have full control of ALL the water resources of the north, it will also be responsible for all the associated infrastructure. Many TC councils do not want to ceed control of local water resources, atm those who do not relinquish control will not recieve Turkish water.


Umit, please explain something to me, please, because Lordo simply just cannot.

Lets put aside all the so called who want's to control the water in the north and so on. Why is it that in the meantime, the so called water from Turkey in not filling the dams but instead supposedly flowing into the sea? What sense does that make?

I tell you what would make sense why the dams are not filling with Turkish water, but instead it is being allowed to flow into the sea, it's because perhaps the water from Turkey is bringing salt water from the sea to the sea. In other words, the water pipes under the sea may have ruptured and allowing sea salt water to mix with the fresh water.

But then the question arises, why continue pumping salt/fresh water into the sea. That doesn't make sense, hence the reason why I said "supposedly" the water from Turkey is flowing into the sea.

Sorry but, I really can't trust Erdogan and gang to come clean with their failures. Same goes to Lordo also. :wink:


Hi Kikapu, apologies for the late reply, I missed your post.

In relation to your questions;

I would have no idea why the water is flowing into the sea ( that is presuming that it is still flowing ). I do know that the infrastructure between cities is still not completed, and many are reluctant about signing off management of the north's water supply to what is essentially a private company. I don't trust Erdogan or his cronies one bit, but there is yet to be any evidence to emerge questioning the pipelines viability.

1. the pipeline is not working to specification.
2. the dam needs to settle.
3. the infrastructure is not built.
4. their are political issues which remain open.
5. the water is for purposes other than "thirst".

...reason no water as yet serves a practical purpose.

...my hope is that the thing will operate, and in the end, at its point of delivery it is Cypriots who enjoy the water as theirs, Free.

The water will pay for quite a bit of the reparations Turkey owes, and as water it is fitting if every Cypriot enjoys equally its benefits in their daily lives.

"Peace water", not water "sold" in pieces.

...i think, this is just one of the surprises that will come if the negotiations are a success, soon.
