The aim of this project is to enhance the knowledge of suitability of plants for storm water management areas. The project has three workpackages: 1. Surveys of the vegetation in existing stormwater areas: 2. Follow-up of the development of the vegetation in newly established stormwater areas: 3. Container trials of different plant species and different soils.


Guidelines for the use of plant species in stormwater areas are made for implementation. The results of the trials are published in scientific papers and for professionals.
