The four case study areas (Helge å (SE), Selke (DE), Reda (PL) and Bērze (LV)) that are described in the tables on the following pages have been chosen based on four criteria:

  1. There are known water quality nutrient problems according to the Water Framework Directive,
  2. There are known flooding problems,
  3. There are other interests that may be included in dialogues about win-win solutions,
  4. There is abundant water flow and quality monitoring data that will facilitate hydrological scenario modeling with a reasonable accuracy.
