Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there was any connection between the amounts overflowed wastewater from UMEVAs sewage treatment plant in Umeå, Västerbotten County, and the amount of precipitation in Umeå. The results of this study show that there is no direct relationship between precipitation and the extent of the overflow for each year during the studied years. The conclusion of this report is that there is no direct correlation between the extent of the overflow from UMEVAs pipe network and sewage treatment plants and the amount of precipitation in Umeå during the years 2003 through 2011. It is difficult to assess what impact the treatment plant has, further studies needs to be performed. Overflow can cause negative effects on both the environment and on human health. Whether the water causes damage or not depends on many factors including volume of emissions, emission points and the sensitivity of the recipients.
