1.2 Promotion and preservation of natural heritage
Commune Ksiezpol (Mazowieckie Voivodeship, Poland)
Chervonograd City Council (Lvivska Oblast, Ukraine)
A common challenge is to improve the environment, thereby preserving the natural heritage for future generations in their area by improving wastewater management in such a way as not to cause interference with the natural environment, which greatly improve the living conditions of the inhabitants of Commune Księżpol and the town Chervonograd. Across the territory of the Commune Ksiezpol flows the Tanew River. Across the territory of the Ukrainian partner flowing the Bug River, the state of water every year is getting worse by excessive discharge of sewage and by outdated water purification facilities. Commune Ksiezpol is located in the zone of areas of high value nature - landscape under legal protection NATURA 2000 - Solska Forest and Lower Valley Tanew and designed to protect - International Biosphere Reserve "Solska Forest." The Chervonograd city is situated on the Bug River which flows through the nature conservation areas in Polish and Ukrainian. The Chervonograd city is an industrial city, with a population of over 80 thousand. The amount of sewage produced and applied technology does not allow us to effectively protect against the ingress of contaminants to the Bug River. There is a need to modernize the existing wastewater treatment plant. The overall objective of the project is to protect natural areas and natural development in their areas.
