The main objective of the project overall is related to the provision of safe, high quality water to the citizens and tourists of the cities of Heraklio, Chersonissos and Agios Nikolaos. Surface water from the Aposelemis dam is collected and transferred to the water treatment plant where advanced water treatment is provided.
Wastewater treatment projects are always challenging, but when upgrading of existing works is involved the challenge increases.
Water information is highly sought after by many kinds of end-users, both within government and business as well as within civil society. Water touches virtually all societal and environmental domains and the knowledge domain is largely multidisciplinary.
