Additional post-conference visit: The unique visit to the Warsaw Filters

The Drinking Water Treatment Station, also known as „Warsaw Filters”, is the oldest and the largest water facility in Warsaw. It was constructed in 1886 and since that moment The Station has incessantly been delivering water for Warsaw citizens.

The Warsaw Filters were established thanks to the efforts of the Mayor of Warsaw - a Russian General Sokrates Starynkiewicz. The construction project of the facility was prepared in 1876 by an eminent British engineer – William Lindley.

The Warsaw Filters water station is one of few Warsaw’s facilities which were not completely destroyed during The Warsaw Uprising in 1944. The main buildings, designed by Lindley as a pressure tower, a pump station, a boiler house, slow filters and clean water reservoirs, survived World War II and some of them are working even today.

In 2012 The Warsaw Filters were declared a monument of history.
