The implementation of Water Framework Directive, speaking about the need to achieve good water status, and thus the corresponding sewage treatment caused the problem of waste water management has become a very important starting from the municipal level, through the national and the European ending. Sustainability, although not explicitly mentioned in the relevant EU or national legislation, it is key to implement wastewater systems. Their main objectives are to protect and promote human health by providing a clean environment, and breaking the cycle of disease. In this paper sustainability of wastewater collection and treatment options in the rural communities’ in Poland, are discussed in the context of recent infrastructure investments. The paper presents an attempt to evaluate the implemented solutions for wastewater management in rural areas considering sustainable development criteria. Advantages and disadvantages of proposed system has been analysed with the focus to the question of selecting the right strategy that would fulfil both population and environmental needs.

Wdrożenie Ramowej Dyrektywy Wodnej, mówiącej o potrzebie osiągnięcia dobrego stanu wód, i w związku z tym odpowiedniego oczyszczenie ścieków spowodowało, iż problem gospodarki ściekowej stał się bardzo ważny poczynając od szczebla gminnego, poprzez narodowy na europejskim kończąc. Zrównoważony rozwój choć nie został wyraźnie wymieniony w odnośnym prawodawstwie krajowym i europejskim jest kluczowy dla wdrażania programów oczyszczania ścieków. Głównym celem jest ochrona i promowanie zdrowia ludzi poprzez zapewnienie czystego środowiska. Zrównoważony rozwój przy wyborze systemów oczyszczania ścieków na terenach wiejskich w Polsce omówiono w kontekście niedawnych inwestycji infrastrukturalnych. W artykule przedstawiono próbę oceny wdrożonych rozwiązań dla gospodarki ściekowej na terenie wiejskim biorąc pod uwagę kryteria zrównoważonego rozwoju. Wady i zalety proponowanych systemów oczyszczania ścieków analizowano z naciskiem na kwestie wyboru właściwego systemu, który zaspokoi potrzeby ludności i nie wpłynie negatywnie na środowisko.
