Opening of the Dæli stream
The opening of Dæli stream in Bærum municipality contributes to more fish and less flooding.
Finding and eliminating sources of pollution can be difficult when everything is laid in pipes underground. This was the case for
the Dæli stream in Bærum municipality – previously an ideal stream for trout. The summer of 2020 Bærum will reopen the
stream, making it a potential habitat for fish. This is not only beneficial for the biological diversity – it is also an important climate adaptation effort. Opening the stream works as a flood reducing measure; the reduces water speed and increases the capacity of redirecting water, naturally diverting runoff. The stream is located in an area with many hikers who will enjoy pleasant nature experiences in an otherwise urban area.
