Plateneiko river springs in Panachaiko Μountain (near Kastritsi village) and empties into the Corinthian bay. It was named after the Platani village (12km from Patras). Plataneiko creek feeds into Kladeos river, which is a tributary of Alfeios river. The huge hydraulic potential of its mouth due to the inclination of the ground and the drainage of the basin put in danger the crops and the inhabited areas, especially during heavy precipitations. Today, flood controls are in place to avoid such damage.
TL;DRPlataneiko river that springs in Panachaiko mountain becomes ferocious during winter months.
