During a working conference of 43rd edition of the Water supply and communal companies in the West Pomeranian region, held on 21-23 March in Niechorze GWiK sp. z o.o. Goleniów presented to the members of the association the STEP project and the Interreg South Baltic Program. Both the project and the program aroused great interest. A lot of questions concerned in particular the program, most conference participants did not have any knowledge of the programm. Due to the size of enterprises represented by members of the association (mainly small and medium ones), the planned activities related to optimization of sludge composting and liquidation of accompanying odors aroused big interest, especially of colleagues from Trzebiatów who, like GWiK, have a sludge composting plant.
