The municipality of Krynica Zdrój has the status of the health resort. The commune is situated in the eastern part of the Beskid Sądecki and on the western edge of the Beskid Niski. The municipality has an area of 145.3 square kilometers, including agricultural land 39% forest land 55%. This represents 9.37% of the county.
This pilot wastewater treatment technology was implemented by Institute of Technology and Life Sciences, and it consists of a slope soil-plant bed and vertical flow trickling filter bed.
The project description
Educational and presentation path of technological objects in individual wastewater treatment systems using filtration processes in quasi technical soil and plant installations.
The basis for the program concept of the project was to create a closed (out-of-flow) system of quasi technical and technological facilities, made and operating in full technical and operational scale, configured in the process of the full range of wastewater treatment in individual systems operating in dispersed rural areas.
Wastewater treatment installation in Tylicz Station was designed for mountain conditions and is localized on slope. Installation was intended for treatment sewage from individual houses, up to the 50 persons. It is especially designed for mountains habitants living in separate houses without possibility connection to the piping system. Each part (station) of the installation is described on the special tables for better recognition by local population, which wants to build wastewater treatment stations for their own farm. Installation is designed with utilization water soluble plants.
Installation consists of the 7 elements fulfilling different roles in the treatment system (Figure).
Technology and construction of educational path is based on sewage treatment with help of plants, grass and soil, and with sewage slowly leaking down the slope up to the stabilization pond. This type of construction takes more place as typical tank with aeration and denitrification zones, but is more effective and can be part of gardening with water soluble plants. However, construction as educational path needs more care by habitants than aerated, underground tank. Summing up, this is construction proper for agro touristic households teaching guests how to treat wastewater in a people- friendly way.
Renovated wastewater treatment system is based on the gravitational downslope flow of sewage, and in 50% of solutions doesn’t need any pump or special aeration.
The detailed description of building process can be found from the report
'Installation of technological systems for wastewater treatment' available at the VillageWaters Internet page:
VillageWaters suggest most effective wastewater treatment solutions in scattered dwellings households, which use their own, independently operated water purification systems.
Environmentally oriented families and homeowners, who live in scattered dwellings areas, where connecting to larger wastewater plants is not option because rural distances.
