Hooking up emergency sewage pipeline in Warsaw

Untreated waste was being channelled into Poland’s Vistula River after a malfunction of the capital’s sewage collection system, including the emergency backup, at the end of August.

 Warsaw Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski has confirmed that the temporary sewage pipeline constructed in Warsaw is being activated. The pipeline, mounted on a floating army bridge on river Vistula, is to carry sewage to the „Czajka” treatment plant. 

 Mayor Trzaskowski said that the pipeline would operate for two months, during the time when the collecting system under the river is repaired. 

 „I believe that over the next week we will be able to supply more information about what caused the failure and of course work is in progress to repair the collector and pipeline” he told journalists before the hookup operation on Sunday afternoon. 

 He also assured that there was no knowledge about industrial waste being pumped into the river, and that no government institutions had informed of any environmental hazard.
