Within the Water Treatment Station "Prague" at 21 Brussels Street there was launched modern installation of indirect ozone and carbon filters.

The finalisation of the investment means that each of the water companies in the Capital City in Warsaw has been equipped with advanced, efficient technological systems that allow residents to ensure that all agglomerations access to water of the highest quality.

The project consisted of the expansion of the existing water treatment process further by intermediate ozonisation and filtration with granular activated carbon. The detailed scope of works included the complete construction of the ozonisation station and carbon filters station , intermediate pumping stations, storage building, technical support, as well as modernization of existing infrastructure.

The task was carried out in the framework of the Project entitled "Water supply and wastewater treatment in Warsaw - Phase IV", co-financed by the Cohesion Fund of the European Union.
