Our projects

Sweden Water Research conducts research into water and develops new, effective solutions to meet the future challenges facing the water services industry.

We create, run, participate in and initiate projects that seek out suitable partnerships, with the ultimate aim of increasing knowledge of successful methods for the development and climate change adaptation of the cities of the future. Projects within Sweden Water Research are run in close collaboration with the owner municipalities and will, in either the short or the long term, benefit day-to-day operations.

Urban Swimming

The Swedish summer dream often revolves around sun, warmth, and swimming. Thus, a good swimming spot is crucial when planning holidays and leisure activities. But what is the actual quality of our bathing waters – and is it affected by our water treatment facilities? This is something the Urban Swimming project delves into.

Sustainable Pricing of Water

The technology for a more circular use of water exists, but we need new business models and changed behavior to make it possible on a larger scale. This project identifies challenges related to legislation, collaboration among different stakeholders, and the need to increase awareness of the challenges in the water industry.

Murån river, drainage and ecology

Several studies conducted at the Bolmen Research Station indicate that the local impact of the Murån river in the southwestern lake Bolmen results in significant browning of the Bolmen water, which is used for drinking water after treatment at the Ringsjöverket facility. This has a significant environmental impact and is cost-intensive.

ISWIM – Innovative stormwater impact mitigation

With urbanization and more intense rainfall the demands on the systems that manage stormwater increases. Additionally, stormwater contains various pollutants. Today, stormwater is often discharged into lakes, rivers, and the sea with little or inadequate treatment. Treatment technologies need to be developed to meet the current and future requirements for stormwater quality, resource management, and the potential for on-site stormwater use in properties.
