Öppen dagvattenlösning med svackdiken för Norra Borstahusen modellerat med MIKE SHE / Sustainable urban drainage using swales in Norra Borstahusen, a study made in MIKE SHE
In the city of Landskrona the residential area Norra Borstahusen will be constructed. There is an interest to investigate the possibility of sustainable urban drainage for the area. The aim of this paper is to investigate if it is possible to uses swales do avert water from roads and houses during extreme rain events. This has been done by using an existing hydrological model of the area created by DHI Sweden AB in the program MIKE SHE. Swales were placed next to roads and on properties in the model to avert water. The swales by the roads were connected as a system to lead water towards the recipient. In the present paper only swales were investigated and therefore this could be a one-sided solution. It is therefore recommended to use other types of sustainable urban drainage in combination with swales to create a more complete system.
