Storm water in Skellefteå municipality

 

The aim of this study is to illustrate environmental problems associated with storm water runoff, including potential treatment options for Skellefteå municipality.

 

According to climate change predictions we can expect an increased amount of precipitation in northern Sweden, leading also to increased levels of storm water runoff. The legislation about storm water runoff in Sweden is rather complicated and subjected to interpretation. Even though several laws are touching the issue, a comprehensive legislation is missing.

 

The municipality in Skellefteå has today no sustainable, long-term plan regulating storm water runoff, even though treatment policies and measures could potentially reduce environmental impacts within the municipality, including also esthetical and technical aspects.

 

The study has been carried out by interviewing different administration units within Skellefteå municipality dealing with issues related to storm water runoff. Furthermore, existing strategies of other municipalities in Sweden have been analyzed. The study illustrates different options for management policies for storm water runoff that can be used as a basis for the development of a future management plan for Skellefteå municipality.
