Building a bioretention area in a cold climate

T. M. Muthanna & S. T. Thorolfsson
This paper describes an experimental field work setup for testing the performance of bioretention areas in a cold climate setting at Risvollan urban hydrological station in Trondheim, Norway. Bioretention focuses on water retention, peak flow reduction, and water quality improvement with respect to heavy metals and sediments. However, in colder climates the performance of bioretention areas are to a large extent unknown. The most problematic with winter conditions are the many interchanged snow and rainfall...
