Effect of Development of the town of Przemysl on Operation of its Sewerage System


Title variants

Languages of publication



The paper presents the results of the analysis of the sewage system functioning in the city of Przemysl. It was assumed that, as a result of joining to the city new areas, the volume of stormwater discharged to existing combined sewer system would increase continuously. The information about the areas that are planned to be joined was drawn from current development plan of the city. On the basis of data received from the sewage system exploiter hydrodynamic model of the drainage basin of Zasanie quarter was created. The model is based on the existing sewerage network design and development plan of the city. Simulations with the use of real-life precipitation data collected by the pluviometer in Przemysl were carried out with the use of Storm Water Management Model program.
W pracy dokonano analizy funkcjonowania systemu kanalizacyjnego miasta Przemyśla, w której założono wzrost ilości ścieków deszczowych odprowadzanych do istniejącej sieci kanalizacji ogólnospławnej, będący wynikiem przyłączenie do miasta nowych obszarów. Tereny te zostały ustalone zgodnie z obowiązującym „Studium Uwarunkowań i Kierunków Zagospodarowania Przestrzennego Miasta Przemyśla”. Na podstawie danych uzyskanych od eksploatatora systemu kanalizacyjnego stworzono model hydrodynamiczny zlewni dzielnicy Zasanie. Model ten został zbudowany w programie Storm Water Management Model na podstawie projektu istniejącej sieci kanalizacyjnej miasta i planów zagospodarowania przestrzennego. Do symulacji wykorzystano rzeczywiste dane opadowe, zarejestrowane na deszczomierzach w Przemyślu. Celem przeprowadzonej analizy było określenie wpływu rozwoju terenów miejskich na przepływy ścieków systemem kanalizacyjnym.
