Major improvements to wastewater and sanitation network in Poznań
Investment into the wastewater network in Poznań, Poland, is further extending the modernisation of the city’s water management systems, to cover sewerage, storm water, and wastewater treatment plants.
This project represents a major infrastructure scheme improving waste and wastewater management in Poznań.The works will be carried out in four localities in the Poznań district: Suchy Las in the municipality of Suchy Las; Daszewice in the municipality of Mosina; Kamionki in the municipality of Kornik; and Puszczyków in the municipality of Puszczykowo. Overall, the project will benefit around 9 880 residents, who will be connected to the sewerage network that is already in place in Poznań and its surroundings.
The network development includes: an increase of the daily average flow capacity of the Mosina plant, which involves the modernisation of all elements used; the new part of the mechanical, biological and sludge treatment; the cancellation of the pre-sedimentation; and the use of bioreactors with simultaneous nitrification / denitrification implemented in the chambers rather than in a separate chamber as is currently the case.
Lastly, the sanitary sewer in the Kornik and Poznań agglomerations will be extended by approximately 88.28 km, along with the creation of 20 pumping stations, 18 in Kornik municipality and 2 in Poznań.
