iWater – Integrated Storm Water Management for the Baltic Sea cities

iWater - Integrated Storm Water Management project aims to improve the urban planning in the cities of the Baltic Sea Region via developing integrated storm water management system. During the years 2015–2018, common guidelines and tools of integrated storm water management will be developed in the partnering cities with the involvement of local stakeholder and interest groups.

Other activities include a student competition for developing new innovative storm water management solutions and creating or updating urban and storm water planning processes/systems in the seven partner cities, which later will function as basis for investment plans to be realized after the project life-time

In practice, the project partner cities adopt new programmes and approximately 35 other cities are trained to use developed methods in the region. iWater partners are Riga and Jelgava (LT), Söderhamn and Gävle (SE), Tartu (EST), Helsinki and Turku (FI), Aalto University (FI) and Union of the Baltic Cities Sustainable Cities Commission.
