Water leak in road

Post by Manimad » Sun Jul 01, 2018 6:18 pm

We have a large water leak on the road leading to our property which has been there for around 3yrs. Everyone I know in the area have reported it to the water company but to date they have just ignored it and the water is being wasted all year round. Anyone have any other ideas of how we can get this fixed ? It’s corroding the road causing it to collapse too :? Does anyone on the board know anyone at the water company ? Or is it just a lost cause?

http://www.parea-sti-mani.com/en/local/ ... bout-water I assume you have already tried this. In England I would contact my M P but does that work in Greece? Does anyone know?

Thanks Stella - yes we have emailed :westmanidimoslink@gmail.com quite a few times from several different people but havnt even had a response. We have also copied in the Mayors office. It’s very frustrating as we all paid to have the road redone before the leak and it’s corroding really badly. Such a waste of water 🚿 as well. I understand leaks happen but to be left in this bad state for so long is really bad of them. Will keep trying and if anyone has any further help/advice I’m all ears 👂 👍👍👍

Shaming by publicity perhaps? Try Tharros the local paper.

Just had another thought. Can KEP in Kardamili the equivalent of our CAB help you to escalate the complaint? Maybe there are contact details on the Parea site. I will check. I agree it is a terrible waste of water at a time when some of us here are enjoying water cuts. Found in telephone directory https://www.vrisko.gr/details/16_j7fd_c ... 0ΜΕΣΣΗΝΙΑΣ

Thanks Stella - will try everything (y)

We have written to the Kalamata Newspaper you mentioned so will see if that makes any difference.

In the meantime if anyone wants to visit and bring their Kayak or Lilo's up we are charging 2euros an hour and free Mythos :lol:
