In SITES water we collect infromation from lakes and streams. At Röbäcksdalen two creeks, Degernäsbäcken and Röbäcken, are used for sampling.

Degernäsbäcken and Röbäcken run through our argicultural lands, past the airport, and then merge with Umeå river. Today we sample three locations in Degernäsbäcken upstream the E4 road. One place is before Degernäsbäcken merges with Röbäcken and two places are after they merge. We also sample two loctations in Röbäcken, where one place is just before it merges with Degernäsbäcken and one is further upstream, just before the creek enters the urban area.


Coordination of the monitoring program is done by Marcus Wallin at Swedish University of Agricultural Sceinces. Read more about the program on SITES water's official site.
