Municipalities’ use of watersheds- perspective in urban water planning: A qualitative study (English)
Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose of the report is to examine how the municipality's VA- organizationtakesintoaccountandusesthecatchmentarea'sperspectiveatstormwater planning, and to investigate the extent to which the VA-organization has the tools needed to solve the task. The goal is to highlight the challenges that the municipality's VA-organization is experiencing with implementing a watershed-perspective in order to achieve sustainable stormwatermanagement.

 

Method: The study is conducted as a qualitative case study with abductive approach where the authors move between theory and empiricism. Semistructured qualitative interviewshavebeenconductedwithliteraltranscription,whichtogetherwithliterature studies created coherence and achieve thegoal.

 

Findings:Theresultsuggeststhatlargermunicipalitiesstudywatershedandimplement stormwater measures in line with the watershed-perspective. Basis such as deluge- mapping or structural-plans are used to locate suitable locations to implement sustainable stormwater measures with maximum benefit for the entire watershed area. Modeling tools facilitate work with sustainable stormwater measures for all municipalities. Sustainable stormwater measures in urban areas is difficult to implement due to lack of space. A challenge that needs to be resolved is the question ofresponsibility,bothintermsofadministrativecooperationinthefieldofstormwater issues, but also cooperation concerning the watershed betweenmunicipalities.

 

Implications: The results indicate that smaller urban areas are not taken into account inthewholewatershedarea.Thiscanhaveconsequencesdownstreaminthewatershed area. By locating suitable sites and plan for how to implement a stormwater measure, the entire watershed area is favored instead of individual development plan. Issues regarding responsibilities in the watershed area is seen as severe, and there is potential for development in this area. The respondents argue that there is a need for clearer consequencesfornon-compliancewithenvironmentalqualitystandardsforstormwater process.
