Asprokremmos Dam

Asprokremmos Dam

Asprokremmos dam is the second largest dam in Cyprus. It is built at an altitude of about 100 m above sea level and is located 16 km, (10 miles) east of the city of Pafos

It was completed in 1982 and has a capacity of 52,375,000cubic metres.

Due to poor rainfall it is a rare event that the dam overflows. The last time this happened was in 2004. It is considered an important wetland for endemic and migratory birds.

Update,
All Cyprus dams overflowed in Spring 2012 thanks to a very wet wniter.
