From May 1, the regulation of the Lesser Poland Voivode on the ban on entering areas at risk of sinkholes in Trzebinia will come into force. 38 places at risk of sinkholes, which have been selected by the Polish Geological Institute, are located less than 20 meters from the buildings.

In total, PGI indicated in Trzebinia almost half a thousand places at risk of sinkholes. On Wednesday, the voivode of Lesser Poland, Łukasz Kmita, made a decision decision to introduce a prohibition of residence on marked, generally accessible, public areas at risk of sinkholes in Trzebinia. It will apply from Monday, May 1 until further notice.

Spółka Restrukturownictwa Kopalń, the legal heir of the Siersza mine, must introduce uniform marking of these places with boards and tapes. If information about new endangered areas appears in the future, SRK must immediately mark them.

The voivode issued the regulation because some residents were entering the endangered areas despite the signs informing about the danger. – Such a legal instrument is necessary. This is an ordinance introduced for the sake of protecting the health of life and property – noted the voivode, who recently visited Trzebinia several times and observed that many people, especially young people, enter dangerous areas. – In this way, they bring a real threat not only to themselves, but also to the security services – added Łukasz Kmita.

During Thursday’s city council, the councilors decided to appeal to the president, prime minister and both houses of parliament for financial assistance. – It is about funds for the preparation of new areas where it could be built, for example a cemetery or allotments. Today, we have practically no place for burials in the Siersza and Gaj estates – explained the chairman of the Trzebinia City Council, Waldemar Wszołek. He added: – In this appeal, we included a request for help, for support, for additional funds for those areas that are affected by sinkholes.

The ban will also apply in the forests on the Gaj estate, at Młyńska Street and on the so-called health path and the railway embankment to the Siersza Power Plant.

The Polish Geological Institute has designated nearly half a thousand places at risk of sinkholes in the commune. 38 points are within 20 meters of built-up areas.

The phenomenon of sinkhole formation in Trzebinia intensified in 2021. Earlier, 20 years after the liquidation of the mine, it occurred sporadically. According to experts, the deformations are caused by water constantly flowing into the post-mining excavations and soil types – there are sands, gravels, clays. Shallow exploitation, carried out in this place in the 19th century, also contributes to the formation of sinkholes.

The liquidation of KWK Siersza in Trzebinia began in 1999 in accordance with the resolution of Nadwiślańska Spółka Węglowa. The NSW plan for 1999-2001 was for complete decommissioning by sinking and was approved by the then Minister of Economy. The plan was approved by the director of the District Mining Office in Kraków. In 2001, Spółka Restrukturownictwa Kopalń, pursuant to an agreement with Nadwiślańska Spółka Węglowa, acquired a mine that had been put into liquidation.
