Kouris Dam Overflows

Published 15th of January, 2020

Last year it held firm, but now even the great Kouris Dam has succumbed to the inevitable and overflown in the rain. We were there with our cameras. You've seen the film, now read the blog...

There She Blows!

We approached the dam from the A6. We could already see that it had overflowed before we got here, because rivers were running through the bridges of the motorway that hadn't been there before.

As we approached the dam, we decided to explore the area in front of it firest. There was the big water slide you see here, but we could also see some more interesting water features.

See what I mean? That looks pretty special to me.

Front of the Dam

The track we were driving down took us to the front side of the dam. I didn't drive across there as the turning circle on my Pajero is not good and I didn't fancy reversing all the way back.

From here you can see another water feature, to the left of the waterfall. What is that spout?

Kouris Reservoir

We've neglected the dams for a while. They've overflowed, and now the waters are subsiding, ever so slightly. But what of the reservoirs further afield? Kouris has a church which is nearly submerged when it is full. So we thought we better photographed this semi-submerged church while it is still semi-submerged.

The Asprokremmos Dam first started to overflow over a week ago. We filmed it at the time, but vowed to return once it had got into full swing...

Return to The Abandoned Ranch

The other day we saw an article about a mysterious church that had appeared in the Kouris Reservoir because of the low water level. When we got there it turned out to be a case of bad journalism. However, as we were in the area, we decided to revisit the abandoned Rancho Appaloosa, to see how much it had changed since we first found the place, in 2016.
