With positive result continues the research of EYATH for the problem with him deafening sound which has been upsetting for six weeks now dozens of inhabitants in the area of Meteora, Thessaloniki. Competent teams visit and investigate every night the place where the sound is heard loudly and estimates show that its source has been identified. ThessToday.gr conducted a second autopsy in Meteora in the early hours of Tuesday where at aqueduct of the area was found special unit of EYATH and the management of the Company to proceed with the required investigations.
As seen in the video above, EYATH ladder but also members of the administration started the search shortly before 12 inside the aqueduct while after 1 they left without mentioning anything to the residents who had gathered at the spot to be informed.
Immediately after, they went to the tank in the area of Polichni, where it was ascertained by the first estimates at around 3 in the morning, as reported by EYATH sources in ThessToday.gr, where the sound comes from.
As ThessToday first revealed the previous days, the sound starts late at night and more intensely after 2 in the morning when there is silence. According to residents, it is heard inside their homes and many can not sleep at night. Their own autopsy leads into the aqueduct where the sound is loud and there is tremor in the ground. However, it appeared from yesterday ‘s investigations that the problem from EYATH.
The sound is due to tuning
In distance 2 km from the intersection of Kifissias and Acropolis streets the audio source is located. The workshop performed tests in the reservoir of Polichni, 2 km away from the point of volume in Meteora and the noise stopped shortly after 3 in the morning. “There is no technical problem with the tank or the issue of age. The research showed that a mechanism that did not make noise in Polichni, was tuned and the sound was transmitted to Meteora, at a distance of 2 km. We essentially closed some mechanisms and the water pressure in the area decreased. We will monitor the phenomenon in the coming days in order to reach 100% of this conclusion. We will not proceed with excavation or change of machine as it is a coordination problem. “We want people to sleep and we continue the same research until we come to this conclusion.” revealed sources of EYATH in ThessToday.gr.
The president of the Meteora Citizens’ Union, Ioannis Pyridis stated to ThessToday.gr with dissatisfaction after the departure of EYATH that “For a month now, we have been at the point with the citizens every day and we even waited for them to tell us something. They left aqueduct and they did not tell us anything. “
The Vice-President of the Union, Nikos Papadopoulos stressed the need for official documents from any competent body that conducts an autopsy on the spot and is not involved with the sound “In order to move on to the next one. We will bother the municipality to send the appropriate documents to the services “.
It is reminded that the previous days of cooperation between the natural gas and EYATH went to the point and from the controls that were made no official conclusion was drawn. However, hydraulic investigations focus on the operation of the pipeline and water pipes. Although EYATH sources told ThessToday.gr that although the first inspections did not show any problem in their network, “It is an unprecedented event for us and yesterday we had the first positive results from their research.”
The geological phenomenon or its connection audio with recent earthquakes in Thessaloniki and Halkidiki was excluded from the beginning as Vassilis Melfos, Associate Professor of the Department of Geology of the Aristotle University, stressed once again on ThessToday.gr. “It is clearly due to the technical works of the area and the nets related to them. “If there was a possibility of such a phenomenon, it would not work with a timer, it starts at 12 midnight and stops at 5 in the morning and the consequences would certainly have appeared.”, he explained while clarifying that the sound is not connected with the recent earthquakes in the area.
The assessment of an engineer
According to the assessment he gave, listening to the sound of the video with the autopsy of ThessToday.gr, the engineer Costas Papakonstantinou, the sound is percussive, low frequency, metallic, indefinite periodic and terrestrial. “And if it is perceived inside apartments, it is also modular and perhaps more annoying due to the coordination of sound waves that are trapped in the construction site. The sound can be the product of a hydraulic blow, and given the aqueduct, it comes from the pumps and the water pressure lifting network due to the altitude difference “, he mentioned characteristically.
He even explained that it makes sense to be intense after midnight as water consumption is lower and mains pressure is higher. He suggested as a solution to some of the hours when the phenomenon occurs, to stop the operation of the aqueduct pumps, to close the loop bases and to cut off the water supply in the district. If the noise subsides, young people will need to adjust their mains pressure and pump operation.
All the residents who are frightened by the sound every night ask through ThessToday.gr for official answers from the institutions in order to be able to find their peace again!
