Municipality of Antiparos
The Municipality of Antiparos was founded in 2010 (under the Greek administrative reform “Kallikratis”), and is a public entity responsible for the administration of the island of Antiparos (1,196 permanent inhabitants; census 2011). Among other things, it is in charge of the provision of water supply and sewerage services on the island, and is also responsible for the planning, construction, management, operation and maintenance of the main infrastructure projects that take place in Antiparos (e.g. water supply and sewerage networks, desalination unit).
One of the most valuable infrastructure projects, recently completed, is the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Before the construction of the plant, the domestic wastewater of the island was disposed into septic tanks, causing contamination of groundwater and the marine environment, and generation of unpleasant odors. Municipality of Antiparos is managed by a 13 member Board of Directors, which sets goals and shapes the development policy of the island.
Main tasks in the project:
- WP 3: in charge of the operation and maintenance of the WWTP of the island (treatment technologies: constructed wetlands and disinfection), provision of data and measurements related to the operation of the plant (site no. 10)
