A Modern Wastewater Treatment Facility is Being Built in Lviv Region

In the picturesque village of Malechkovychi within the Solonka Territorial Community of Lviv Region, a groundbreaking project has commenced, heralding the construction of a cutting-edge wastewater treatment plant.

This state-of-the-art facility will feature six modules of biodiscs, boasting an impressive combined capacity of 1200m³/day, all complemented by a meticulously designed access road. This ambitious undertaking comes at a total cost of 159.7 million hryvnias, as officially reported by the Lviv Regional State Administration’s Department of Ecology and Natural Resources via their Facebook page.

The objectives of this visionary project encompass several crucial aspects:

  • Establishment of a high-quality and supremely efficient drainage system.
  • Implementation of innovative wastewater treatment technologies, harnessing the prowess of combined treatment facilities featuring a unique rotary biological treatment system.
  • Deployment of energy-efficient equipment to optimize resource consumption.
  • Curtailment of environmental pollution arising from untreated sewage, thereby preserving the pristine natural surroundings.

It is worth highlighting that the project’s funding will draw from various sources. In 2023, 15 million hryvnias will be allocated from the regional environmental protection fund, supplemented by an additional 10 million hryvnias from the local budget.

The Solonka Territorial Community has taken proactive measures by submitting a project application to the cross-border cooperation program Interreg NEXT “Poland-Ukraine 2021-2027” to secure supplementary funds. The overarching goal is to ensure the completion of these essential facilities by the end of 2025.

Oksana Viyty, Acting Director of the Department of Ecology and Natural Resources at the Lviv Regional State Administration, emphasized the project’s significance, stating, “The project’s mission revolves around implementing state-of-the-art wastewater treatment technologies while incorporating energy-efficient equipment to achieve the highest standard of wastewater treatment. This endeavor will effectively put an end to pollution of the Malechkovychka River, which ultimately flows into the Shchyrka River within the Dniester basin and Lake Navaria.” She further added that the project would facilitate the connection of approximately 9,000 residents from the villages of Solonka, Navaria, and Malechkovychi to the drainage system.

In a related development, it was previously reported that construction of sewerage networks in Glynyany, a city located in Lviv Region, initiated in 2014, is set to conclude by the end of 2023. Additionally, plans are underway to finalize the comprehensive reconstruction of sewage treatment plants, marking a significant milestone since their original construction in 1974.
