Better water supply for Poles

A LEEDS firm's work to boost the water supply for the people of Warsaw has been completed.

Consultancy WYG was appointed as the contract engineer on the new water improvement plant by the Central Water Management Administration in Warsaw.

It was the largest water enhancement project in Europe at a cost of €60m and will benefit 900,000 residents in the Polish capital.

Andrzej Dziurdzik, managing director of WYG, said: "The project did have its complexities with the various technologies applied and due to its location being in the heart of the city within the National Heritage protection facility. This required the highest standards and hand-on expertise while the project was undertaken."

The upgrade has improved the quality of water by 50 per cent and increased the water supply.
