Water management - Εικόνα

SNFCC and the Stavros Niarchos Park are designed to be as self-sufficient as possible regarding water requirements: irrigation, non-potable water applications and the water used in the Canal. Specifically:

  • Rainwater harvesting system and aquifer recharge
  • Seawater is used in the Canal
  • Water cleaning and reuse system for sanitary facilities (gray water)
  • Use of seawater processed by reverse osmosis
  • Use of non-potable water from boreholes within SNFCC
  • Irrigation automation and use of plants with reduced irrigation requirements
  • Underground drip irrigation instead of surface irrigation
  • River gravel soil cover, preventing rapid evaporation
  • No use of drinking water from the public water grid
