Potamoi Dam Still Filling

I just had another look at the Potamoi Dam and it is still filling. The winter rains have contributed a lot and we still have the melting snow to come.

This is now the biggest Cretan Lake, and it still has not reached it’s full size. Forget Kournas Lake, once the biggest lake in Crete, Potamoi Lake is bigger than anything on the island already.

So there we are, Crete has now a huge water resource for agricultural water, thanks to a grant from the European Union.

  1. It’s been a while since I’ve passed this place, but it looks like we’re doing something positive on our island.

    Are you enjoying the weather? It’s been cold, and we’re suffering from little sniffles and coughs, but I love the rain, because we never really get enough of it.
