Raw waste dumped into Vistula again after heavy rain

Raw waste was on Thursday again being dumped into the Vistula in Warsaw, following a decision to dismantle a makeshift sewage pipeline after heavy rain caused water levels in the river to rise.

The temporary sewage pipeline, mounted on a pontoon bridge, was erected following a collector system failure at the Czajka sewage treatment plant on the east bank of the Vistula in August.

The discharge of waste straight into Poland’s largest river at the time sparked alarm over environmental and health risks.

The Vistula River bisects the Polish capital and empties into the Baltic Sea in the country’s north.

The Warsaw collector system previously malfunctioned in the summer of 2019. That prompted a decision to erect a makeshift sewage pipeline, which was later dismantled.
