Lets learn some things about lake Plastiras history and the surrounding area.
Lake Plastiras has not always been here. The position has existed since ancient times and river "Tavropos" was flowed slowly over the south to meet river Acheloos. This area was called Nevropolis, apparently by the abundance of deers that once lived here. (“Nevros” is the newborn of the deer).
Around 1928 an important man of Karditsa, General Nikolaos Plastiras conceived the idea of building a dam , that would solve the problem of irrigation of the Thessaly plain, the water supply of Karditsa and of other communities, and that would also produce electricity with the utilization of water power.
