The project addresses a number of environmental concerns in the Miłakowo Commune and the Gusev District with the common aim of mproving the state of the environment in the Vistula Lagoon.
On the Polish side, a sanitary sewage system (5.23 km) and a water supply network (5.26 km) will be constructed in the settlement of Książnik. On the Russian side, a sanitary sewage system (7.07 km) with a sewage treatment plant will be constructed in the settlement of Pervomayskoye. Both settlements are located in the catchment areas of the rivers – the Pasleka (in the Milakowo Commune) and the Pregola (in the Gusev District), which flow into the Vistula Lagoon. Therefore, the construction of modern sewage and water supply infrastructure planned in the project will contribute to eliminating the existing sources of pollution of natural water reservoirs with municipal wastewater.
Furthermore, the population of the Milakowo Commune and the Gusev District will also benefit from the planned soft activities aimed at increasing environmental awareness, which include several study visits for schoolchildren, exchange visits for municipal officials and public lectures for local communities. The joint efforts of the project partners in relation to the infrastructural works and the public events will provide a solid basis for solving the same environmental problems that affect the beneficiaries on both sides of the border.
