Dam's spillway (*)

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

Due to poor rainfall it is a rare event that the dam overflows. The last time this happened was in 2004.[1]

It is considered an important wetland for endemic and migratory birds [2]
