Life at the Marathon dam settlement
A settlement for more than 1,000 residents was created next to the Marathon dam, intended to house the people working on that project. Walking amidst today’s ruins, paths, and surviving buildings, we will seek stories from the everyday lives of the people who lived there with their families until the early 1970s.
The Water Supply and Sewerage Company is the largest Greek enterprise in its sector. Ιt is serving 4.4 million customers in the greater metropolitan area of Attica with freshwater and 3.5 million customers with sewers.
