The Otwock Water and Sewerage Undertaker has already been implementing modernisation work on the treatment plant premises for years, and the outdated equipment has been replaced successively to streamline the biological processes of sewage treatment. We approach the implementation of the task entrusted to us with great involvement because the effect of our works will become transposed onto better environmental conditions, as well as further development of the enterprise. I am convinced that the inhabitants will benefit from all that as well” – said Artur Soczewica, Director of the Central Division of Mostostal Warszawa.
The sewage treatment plant in Otwock provides services to four communes, i.e. areas inhabited by 96 thousand inhabitants. The necessity of modernising the equipment and the introduction of optimum solutions is related to the increase in the amount of discharged sewage.
