The Erasinos river flows through the Mesogeia plain, in  the eastern side of the City of Athens, and lies in the floodplain of the newly built new Athens international Airport

Its catchment area is about 204 km² which results into a  flood discharge of

400 m³/s following a flood  regulation using two artificial lakes. The training of the Erasinos river was necessary in order to protect from flooding the current and future, namely: urban areas and infrastructures of involved  Municipalities, the Horse Racecourse

built for the Olympic Games 2004 in Markopoulo, the New Athens international Airport  and the Archaeological site of Vravrona Temple in the area of the Erasinos outfall in the sea.
