Stockholm Vatten och Avfall not only produces drinking water and treats wastewater, but also works toward the protection and restoration of lakes and waterways.
Stockholm Vatten och Avfall monitors the state of a number of lakes and waterways in Stockholm by sample-taking and different measures to improve the quality of the water.
Stockholm's water program
Stockholm has an official program for water operations that states how the city is to apply the framework directive for water that the European Union has set for 2015. The two main objectives for Stockholm are:
- The water in Stockholm shall be of satisfactory quality
- The water districts in Stockholm shall be attractive recreation areas for everyone
