NOTICES

Dirt tracks
Take care on all dirt roads. Most hire car insurance does not cover the underside of the car.

Water levels
Wetland levels are now very low or gone in many places places including Alykes Wetlands. Tsiknias River and Metochi Lake have good levels. Meladia Valley ford is nearly dry. Faneromani lower ford is completely dry and the upper ford is nearly dry.
