Reference report as PDF

The 2,2-kilometer open discharge channel running in an old river bed from the “Dębogórze” treatment plant to the inlet of a closed channel outside the village of Kazimierz, was put into operation in the 1960s. For years its existence had caused problems both to local farmers, whose lands were repeatedly flooded during seasonal rise in water levels, and to the Water Supply and Sewage Management Company PEWIK Gdynia. PEWIK, which owns and operates the channel, was forced to pay compensation for damages to the farmland. It also incurred costs related to day-to-day and periodical maintenance of the channel, including mowing and elutriation.
