Abstract: During the past 20 years hard effort has been devoted to the protection of rivers and lakes from pollution. This effort has mainly been focused on the obvious sources of pollution i. e. the concentrated outlet of sewage. A series of decisive anti-pollution measures were introduced by the Swedish Government in the 1960's. In 1967 a new central authority, the National Environment Protection Board, was created and in 1969 the Environment Protection Act passed through parliament. In combination with a generous grant system this was the start of a period with extremely rapid improvement of waste water treatment. Refs.
