What are the project likely benefits?

The project will improve effectiveness and efficiency of waste water treatment and collection in the municipality of Tarnowskie Góry for about 55 thousand inhabitants. The connection rate after completion of this project is estimated at 94% and 99% after implementation of the whole programme. Reliable and compliant waste water services will in turn make Tarnowskie Góry a more attractive place for investors.

What are the project likely environmental benefits ?

By improving wastewater collection and treatment, the project will achieve reduction of organic and nutrient pollution load discharged into environment. Significant environmental benefits will also stem from the elimination of groundwater and subsoil contamination thanks to the rehabilitation of wastewater collectors and elimination of leakages. Implementation of the wastewater management programme in the area of Tarnowskie Góry will improve quality of surface waters in this area, in particular quality of water from the Stoła and Drama rivers, and indirectly also the Odra river and the Baltic Sea, ground water, and underground water resources.
