Abstract

This article focuses on the emergence of water pollution problems in the city of Malmö and on how they were discussed and solved. Various countermeasures were proposed and considered, but finally the discharge of wastewater into the Sound of Öresund was regarded as the best solution. As a result, a local pollution problem was transformed into a regional issue. The solutions adopted in Malmö are briefly compared with decisions made in Gothenburg and Stockholm.
