Water Main Supply in Northern Cyprus
By mains supply and in some cases supplemented by wells in Northern Cyprus.
There is a serious shortage of water in many areas of Northern Cyprus and would be residents are advised to ascertain the position in the area they plan to live, particularly when considering purchase of property. Some areas in North Cyprus have better mains supply of water than others, some have spring water as well as piped water. It is not advised to drink well water unless it has been analysed. Septic tanks are still the main method of disposal of domestic waste and sewage and therefore well water could be affected. Soak aways are also used.

Telephone (landline) is also available in villages of Northern Cyprus that are connected to this service.
