The Stockholm action plan for good water status

Tuesday 29 August | 14.00-15.30 | Room: FH Cabaret
Brunnsviken by Juha Salonsaari

In mars 2015 The City Council of Stockholm adopted an Action plan for good water status as a result of the demands for good water status within the European water framework directive.
The aim of the action plan is to state how the water management within the city has to develop in order to gain focus on more operational measures and how the water management within the city need to adapt in order for us to reach the goals of the water frame work directive.
As a part of the Action plan the City Council adopted a new overall target for the water management within the city;  All the lakes, coastal waters and streams within the city of  Stockholm shall reach the environmental targets for water –  in most cases good ecological and chemical status by  latest 2021 or 2027. To reach the target local programmes of measures has to be completed by latest 2019.
In this showcase we will present the Action plan for good water status and some experiences and results from the local programmes of measure.
