ACTIONS FOR THE CLIMATE – CO-FINANCING THE CONSTRUCTION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF WATER AND SEWAGE INFRASTRUCTURE IN AGGLOMERATIONS

Enlarge image

The Ministry of Climate and Environment, with the support of European Funds, runs a programme aimed at co-financing the construction or modernisation of facilities allowing to increase the number of people using the improved municipal sewage treatment system in the agglomeration, especially sanitary sewage systems, water supply networks and municipal sewage treatment plants.

Investments in the water and sewage sector will make it possible to meet the accession obligations in the field of sewage management in Poland, as they will help prevent surface water pollution and contribute to the protection and preservation of the ecological status of the Baltic Sea. These actions are in keeping with the idea of sustainable water management, which involves the broadly understood care for the country’s water resources.

It is worth emphasising that only gminas (‘gmina’ is the principal unit of administrative division in Poland) that have a valid resolution of the gmina council specifying the size and boundary of the agglomeration may apply for co-financing of water and sewage investments carried out within the agglomeration included in the National Programme for Municipal Sewage Treatment.
