According to a mid aged Greek friend with connections to the water company, first fill of the pool should be by tanker. Top up via house water is accepted. Watering a garden is accepted.
Obviously it is much cheaper to take the drinking water e.g. 6 euro versus maybe 80 euro. What I don’t *get* is WHY (for the sake of the relatively small amount of money involved) anyone believes it is ok to use an essential resource in this way? I don’t get *that collective morality*.
In the Kalyves area, tanker water is taken from the Kyliaris river,
My understanding is exactly what your Greek friend said. From an environmental viewpoint, if the water can be taken from the river (by tanker) that is better than turning on the tap outside your house. Provided of course that bowsers fill up from the river below any water collection mechanism. In the case of Kalyves, that's probably OK - the water just runs from Armenoi to the sea! Bob.
