General plan and modelling of run-off water management in Kankaanpää.

Sweco was responsible for compiling the general plan for run-off water management in the City of Kankaanpää. The whole city’s run-off water network was modelled with MIKE Urban modelling software.


The modelling helped identify the system’s bottlenecks and problems with different degrees of rain. The general plan included action recommendations, such as increasing pipeline capacity and delay solutions, which prevent the network’s flooding and the detrimental effects it has on the environment, health and property.
