Wallpaper Description:
Architecture_Ancient_Poland_Warsaw

"The water from the river pumping station was directed to the slow filters, some of which performed the function of closed cisterns.

The pre-filtered water was directed to the fresh water reservoirs, and then to the pumping hall, from where it was pumped to the water tower, where the water supply system of the Upper Town began.

A few years after the filters were put into operation, additional closed cisterns upstream of the slow filters became necessary because studies had shown the poor quality of the water. Therefore, from 1890, the area of the station was expanded and the construction of more cisterns began.

The increasing demand for water led to the addition of a rapid filtration plant in 1930-1933. After its commissioning, the water was directed to the equalizing cisterns (the earlier closed cisterns), further to the rapid filters, and then to the slow filters.

In 1931, the water began to be chlorinated after passing through the slow filters.
