Model Nutrients Reduction Solutions In Near-Coast Touristic Areas

Pilot 5: Nowy Klincz, Poland

06 March 2024
Technical details

The pilot facility is a wastewater treatment plant located in the Bure Misie Settlement, in Nowy Klincz, near Kościerzyna, in the Pomeranian Voivodship, Poland. According to data from 2017, Pomorskie Voivodeship is the second most attractive province in Poland in terms of tourism.


Bure Misie Settlement, in Nowy Klincz, Poland

The technology used in the pilot:

The mechanical-biological wastewater treatment plant (75 PE) that has existed in the area since 2006 needs to be expanded and modernised to ensure a high level of wastewater treatment, considering the high variability of the volume of wastewater. A design for a new wastewater treatment plant, which will include a wetland, is currently under construction. After treatment, the wastewater is to be filtered and disinfected, and the resulting water can be used to irrigate green areas. These processes will reduce the total amount of water used at the Bure Misie Settlement.

About the pilot:

The Bure Misie Settlement includes six residential family houses (ultimately seven – the last to be built in 2024), a chapel, a farm, a small cheese factory and soon also a small bakery. The Settlement also includes an agritourism building, wooden camping cabins and a campsite – these facilities are used during the tourist season, which runs from the end of June to the end of August. The Bure Misie Settlement has an average of 160 people during the summer and an average of 58 people during the rest of the year. As a result, the amount of wastewater produced at the Bure Misie Settlement is characterized by high seasonal variability
