The dam, 220m long, held out the waters of Tavropos, which covered the plateau of Nevropolis and created the lake Plastira (Tavropou). Lake's water caters the hydroelectric station of PPC. It also irrigates the plain of Thessaly and supplies with water the city along with 38 towns and villages of the prefecture, and the wider area of Thessaly.
