Abstract: More than 130 million gallons of untreated domestic and industrial wastewater are discharged each day into the sea near Athens. To mitigate this situation, the government of Greece is building a major new wastewater conveyance and treatment system, including dual siphons extending along the seafloor from the mainland to the island of Psyttalia, and two outfalls extending southward from the island into the Saronic Gulf. Elements of the design and initial construction of these major coastal structures are presented in this paper.
