ABSTRACT
One of the basic elements of environmental and economic policy of Poland is water and sewage management. On the area of Poland with less developed sewage infrastructure part of the population using household sewage systems. But mostly they are used no outflow tanks (92%). The dynamic development of settlements around urban areas should be focused on particular care for the natural environment, also water. The aim of the study was to determine the share of sewage treatment plants in the development of wastewater management in four municipalities adjacent to Lublin city. The study involved the demographic analysis in municipalities, the development of water and sewage systems as well as participation of sewage treatment plants in this system during the years 2005–2014. In all the studied municipalities there was an upward trend associated with the expansion of water supply network and sewerage. In all the studied municipalities a total of 1,413 units of sewage treatment plants, and only 227 of them were financed from the municipality. The largest number of sewage treatment was within the municipality Niemce. In recent years, in most municipalities there was a slight decline in sewage treatment plants investments. This is due to the development of the sewerage network in the areas of municipalities.
