Cleaner waterin your village and around
A one-day seminar attended by about fifty participants from five different countries in the Baltic Sea area. In the seminar there were presentations about current achievements of the VillageWaters project, the situation in Poland and the state of Polish and Lithuanian pilots, as well as presentations of two other EU funded projects (CIRCLE and WATERCHAIN), which also aim to reduce the nutrient load in the Baltic Sea and promote nutrient recycling. At the end of the day experts discussed in the panel discussion about the state of wastewater treatment in the sparse population and challenges in different partner countries.
The day after the seminar, one of the Polish wastewater treatment pilots in Sokoly and two previously built wetland solutions were introduced. In addition, a visit to Sokoly's Mayor was held at a lunch meeting. In the meeting it was discussed the waste and wastewater solutions in the area and their challenges and goals.
The project publishes a browser-based, easy-to-use tool to help you find cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and best-fit solutions for wastewater treatment in sparsely populated areas. The tool can be used, for example, by village communities, households and authorities.
The project final seminar will be held in Tallinn in January 2019. The participants in the seminar will be: authorities (local and national), waste management consultants, SMEs and representatives of educational and research institutions. The seminar introduces a tool completed in the project.
