Water and waste

Safe water and sewerage services are essential for the continued growth of cities and society in the future. Sweco's experts ensure that water and sewerage treatment systems supply clean water and they deal with the waste water discharged by millions of people each day. We have adopted an integrated approach and ensure that all the economic considerations, the environment and people are taken into account.

Urban hydrology and stormwater management

We aim to have a minimal impact on the environment when developing cities of the future. In order to avoid flooding and pollution, society needs to adapt in order to cope with changing climatic conditions involving more intensive rainfall/snowfall.

Sweco develops sustainable solutions designed to deflect and purify stormwater, e.g. by introducing innovative stormwater solutions locally. We also undertake model calculations and propose measures that are designed to protect buildings, infrastructure, watercourses and water and sewerage systems. Our assignments include drawing up reports, undertaking analyses and designing various stormwater systems.  

Our everyday assignments include interdisciplinary project design of water distribution solutions, infiltration beds and solutions, green roofs, flooded areas, open decking, purification solutions and re-opening streams and watercourses. 

Sweco has an extensive network of international contacts. We exchange experiences gleaned from the whole Nordic market so that we can develop our specialist activities in these disciplines.
