"In the Municipality there are 20.000 wells, of which 18.000 belong to the jurisdiction of the Municipality of Athens and the rest of the Attica Region. Eleven thousand have already been cleaned by 7 different workshops operating in the 7 municipal districts "

Giving an order of magnitude of the resources available for the order and support of the city, Mr. Axiotis said that "Apart from the 1,8 million euros, another 1,3 million euros will be given for the restoration of damaged wells. "After an inspection, 250 of the 700 were repaired and we are continuing."

Referring to the ongoing flood protection works in Lycabettus and Strefi, which have been underway since March, with a budget of 2 million euros, the Deputy Mayor for Urban and Building Infrastructure stressed that "In November, work and fire support will begin in Strefi, as well as other geotechnical interventions, with the aim of returning the hill to a safe condition. In Lycabettus we created three basins of runoff and containment of sediments that flooded the ring road during periods of heavy rainfall. "

He also added that flood protection projects are planned in Kolonos and Rizoupoli on Heraklion Avenue, where a relevant study has been underway since 1998.

"By November, a study will be completed and the auction of the project for Podoniftis' flood defenses in Rizoupoli will be completed.

In Kolonos, there was a study by EYDAP since 1998 that had not been implemented for 22 years, with the result that the area presents a three-world picture.
