The project New Water Ways researches and explores ways to move beyond today’s conventional urban water management (UWM), particularly stormwater management.
The program aims to map the levels of pollutants present in a fjord in a densely populated area and how the pollution is concentrated in the food web in the fjord system.
In SPARE we research how cities can increase their resilience by better planning for and implementation of more blue-green infrastructure to handle stormwater, foster biodiversity and increase public health by providing natural outdoor opportunities for recreation.
The section conducts research on topics that contribute to sustainable development of cities and towns, and infrastructure. We study the problems, processes and solutions for handling drinking water, wastewater, and storm water in urban areas, in a changing climate.
