    “Vacuuming the lake” – an innovative method from the UWM

    There is no report in the scientific literature on a more polluted lake than Lake Karczemne in Kartuzy. However, reports are likely to appear soon describing it as clean, owing to UWM scientists, who were the first in Poland to carry out the “vacuuming” of the entire lake bottom.
