Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the planning and preparation work at municipal level regarding ecological restoration in river Moälven located in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. To get the answers I sought, my questions on which this study is based, were how the planning work is done at municipal level regarding restoration in river Moälven in Örnsköldsvik, compared to what is recommended in the theory. I also wondered what factors affected the choice of river Moälven instead of other rivers in the area. Finally, I wanted to know what measurers are supposed to be made, what the area is like today and how the area is supposed to look like after restoration.

I interviewed Erik Spade who is working with restoration in river Moälven at Örnsköldsvik Municipality. I also had some meetings with Erik where we discussed the restoration work. Erik also provided information via email.

My result shows that planning in the municipality of Örnsköldsvik generally follows what is stated in the literature. However, there are some differences. The reason Moälven was chosen for the project, was that Moälven is the river in the municipality with the best conditions for continued positive development. In the present project, it is primarily inventories that will be made to get an idea of how the area looks and what actions will be taken in the future. The aim of the project is that Moälvens drainage area should be completely free from unnatural obstacles that prevent fish from getting up in the river.
