The water management system in South-Western Skane features different water supply sources (surface and groundwater), municipal water demand zones, and several agricultural water users. In the future the Bolmen Lake scheme will be made operational. The major question now is what are the advantages and disadvantages of integrating all sub-regional solutions into a regional water resources system (particularly in terms of increased reliability).

River Basins are the main feature of the sub-regional water resource systems in South Western Skane. A simulation model, MITSIM-2, was developed to analyze the hydrologic performance of these systems. Using this model and water use projections based upon projections of the future demo-economic structure of South Western Skane, a preliminary analysis of a regionally integrated water supply system was performed. This analysis examined the ability of the regionally integrated system to satisfy the water requirements of South Western Skane under different development scenarios.
