Protection of Östads Säteri’s groundwater supply
- Suggestion for municipal regulations
The purpose of this report is to establish a water protection area for Östads Säteri’s groundwater supply by assessing the hydrogeology, the technical information and the potential risks in Östads Säteri’s property and also give a suggestion for municipal regulations. How large does the water protection area has to be and which regulations should be enforced to insure drinking water quality? This report also gives overall information about legislation regarding drinking water, including European (EU) to municipal regulations and also how they are applied on each level. The work has covered calculations of the transport velocity of ground water particles in the soil layers, but also interviews with experts in hydrogeology and with the property owner. The work also includes observations on the property. Some charts were drawn in the computer program Geosecma for ArcGIS and some have been downloaded from SGU (Geological Survey of Sweden). All information data about hydrogeology, technical information and risks were analyzed and with the sum of these parameters the charts could be drawn that show a proposed water protection area at Östads Säteri’s property. The water protection area is almost 1 000 000 m2 and an example of a regulation suggested from the municipality is the prohibition to wash vehicles with degreasing agents inside the water protection area.
