Water and Environment

MINIMAL HARM, MAXIMUM USE Today’s cities have an unavoidable impact on the environment, but adverse effects can be minimised. Sweco’s water and environmental specialists work with reducing harmful emissions, recycling waste and ensuring access to clean water. We also offer solutions that reduce climate impact and adapt society to a changed climate


  • Wastewater treatment
  • Stormwater
  • Hydraulic modelling and flow measurement
  • Ecological assessments and environmental impact assessments (EIA)
  • Water and environmental engineering and network co-ordination


When building the sustainable cities of tomorrow, we minimise our environmental footprint as much as possible, while also adapting society to a changing climate. Handling stormwater is a crucial component of these efforts, in order to prevent flooding and to avoid contamination.

Sweco creates sustainable solutions to divert and treat floodwater by way of innovative, local stormwater solutions, among other measures. We also conduct risk assessments and propose actions to enhance the protection of watercourses, and water and wastewater systems. Our assignments encompass such endeavours as sustainability studies, and analysing and designing various types of water systems. Backed by collective in-house expertise, we can help conduct studies to gain better knowledge and understanding of our systems.

Through the use of modelling, we create illustrations of the current function of the networks and watercourses, and visualise the impact that the planned actions will have. We also conduct sustainability studies on and design various types of water systems.
