Erik Karlsson new Chairman of DRIZZLE Board

Published: 26 August 2020

During the board meeting on August 24, Erik Karlsson was elected new chairman of the DRIZZLE board. He takes over after Pär Weihed, pro vice chancellor at Luleå University of Technology.

Erik Karlsson works as head of Strategic Planning at Stockholm Water and Waste and acts as chairman of the City of Stockholm's steering group for good water status. He is also member of the Swedish Water Sewer and Climate Committee (RÖK).

"I think it is important that the City of Stockholm gets involved in projects such as DRIZZLE. We have a complex urban environment where many interests need to converge in order for good urban planning to take place. We see a strong need to be able to dispose of polluted stormwater which is no easy task in the complex urban environment. Therefore, it is important to gain new knowledge both about pollutants in stormwater and how to deal with them, i.e. knowledge that the DRIZZLE competence center contributes to developing," Erik Karlsson concludes.
