Adaptation actions

Open Stormwater System in Fosie Industrial Area
All stormwater coming from the Skogholms ängar industrial area is diverted to Riseberga Creek along with all storm water from Malmö’s east side. Today it well exceeds capacity; erosion along the creek is a growing problem. An open storm water system has been built alongside Riseberga Creek. By opening stormwater pipes and creating collection areas along the creek, stormwater will be delayed before reaching Riseberga Creek. Start year 2012
