Plan to restore Asopos River enters final stage

Plans are in the final stage for the ecological restoration of Asopos River in Central Greece following a deal to install an integrated water resources management system.

The 37.6-million-euro deal was signed by Alternate Environment Minister Nikos Tagaras, Athens water company (EYDAP) CEO Antonis Vartholomaios and Tanagra Mayor Evangelos Georgiou.

It foresees the construction of a water treatment plant, a network connecting the unit to local reservoirs and a supply line to industrial and agricultural areas in northern Attica. It will be funded by Public Investments Program and the National Strategic Reference Framework.
