Lake in mountain areas with very clear, cold, nutrient-poor waters. Most of the water in a mountain lake is rainwater and meltwater from glaciers. The temperature in the mountain lakes are rarely over 10 degrees even in the surface waters in summer. The visibility in the mountain lakes are often very good, with a Swedish record in Rissajaure (near Abisko), with visibility of 37 meters.
Sweden Water Export
Water – the origin of life and our most basic need.
We all need water to survive. The world’s water resources is very unbalanced – in some places there is an abundance, in other there is a great need. Drought, natural disasters and conflicts often aggravates the situation and can create immediate needs of clean drinking water.
Every minute four people die due to water-related diseases.
In Sweden we have an abundance of crystal clear lakes and rivers with water that could give millions of people a better life. Sweden Water Export is a good initiative to create a balance among the world’s water resources. We can make a difference.
