Thoughtful design contributes to biodiversity
The city of Uppsala is growing and densifying around Exercisfältet, a former military training area with cultural and historical values. This has led to an increased need to both treat and detain stormwater.
The stormwater pond at Exercisfältet in Uppsala is a necessity to protect nature from the city’s polluted water and to protect the city from flooding due to reduced infiltration and climate change. With thoughtful design, the pond has also become a popular place for rest and socializing while contributing to biodiversity.
