In particular, one of the items of the draft law regulates the quality of tanks that are used for transportation and storage of fresh water, Reporter reports.

It will also tighten control over the chemical composition of fresh water, which is fed to the homes of the island's residents. Certificates of companies that deal with desalination, as well as transportation and storage of fresh water in tankers will be revised and reissued.

Such measures were taken after frequent complaints from the inhabitants of Cyprus on the quality of fresh water on the island.
