This theme deals with all sources of nutrients transported from catchment areas to water bodies. Our sub-projects include:
Better eutrophication policy instruments
Analysis of eutrophication policy instruments to decrease eutrophication from agriculture.
Water plans at the farm level
Water planning advisory function at the farm level. This project also includes a pilot project with concrete measures to reduce nutrient load in horse keeping at Julmyra Horse Center.
Decrease eutrophication at the river basin level
Capacity building and planning to decrease eutrophication from agriculture at the river basin level, in rivers Sagån, Kilaån and Hågaån.
Decision support tools
Decision support tools, such as maps and models, to reduce eutrophication from agriculture and optimize localization and choice of measure at local and regional scales.
Storm water purification
Finding phosphorus and pollutants in storm water – best practice and innovation.
Multi-functional water parks
Multi-functional water parks as storm water treatment and post purification step for sewage water. The project includes exchange of knowledge and experience between all stakeholders and water parks in Västerås, Uppsala and Smedjebacken.
