Due to political conflicts, the northern part of Cyprus is being under economical

crisis. This is employed by environmental problems such as non-organised

improvement of residential areas and their effects on habitat. Especially, three main

cities where 75 percent of population is crowded, is seriously under the threat of

sewerage problems. In this study the comparisons for available sewerage system of

three main municipalities is carried to search for urgent investment required among

them. This has been done through the Prioritisation Method. The method involves

analyses on levels of sanitation, environmental and public health impacts and

financial sustainability of the municipalities, which is under the effects of agriculture,

residential and industrial areas.
