Modelling Lake Furesoe
Complex analysis of nature restoration in an entire catchment system
Rapidly increasing urbanisation in Copenhagen has exposed Lake Fureso to increasing pollution over the years. We evaluated the different lake restoration measures to properly assess their impacts on the lake and catchment area. Based on our modelling analyses, recirculation of highly treated and purified sewage has been considered to speed up the rehabilitation of the lake and ensure sufficient flow in the downstream river. This will re-establish the natural water balance in the catchment.
