Åbyälven

ÅBYÄLVEN HAS ORIGINS IN AUKTSJAUR, SOUTHERN MOSKOSEL IN NORRBOTTEN COUNTY. SEVERAL LARGE SOURCE LAKES CONTRIBUTE WITH WATER  THE RIVER THAT MAKES IT GROW FAST TO A SLEEPING FLOWING FOREST. THE LARGEST LAKES IN THE SYSTEM ARE LAUKER, VUOTTNER AND ÖSTRA KIKKEJAUR. ALL THEM  LOCATED IN NORRBOTTEN COUNTY.

AFTER THE EASTERN KIKKEJAUR HAS BEEN PASSED, LONG-TERM SELE AREAS DOMINATE ALMOST TO THE COUNTY BORDER. BYSKESELET BELONGS TO ONE OF THE LARGER. THE CHARACTER OF ÅBYÄLVEN CHANGES DRAMATICALLY AFTER KLUBBFORS WHEN STREET AND FORESPARTIES BECOME DOMINANT. LONGER RIVER AREAS TAKE AT AND BORGFORSEN AND LÅNGFOREN CAN BE MENTIONED. MALBÄCKEN AND TÄRÅN ARE TWO OF THE LARGER WATER CURRENTS THAT RUN IN THE ÅBY RIVER IN VÄNERBOTTEN COUNTY. IT IS ONLY IN NORRBOTTEN COUNTY THAT RESTORATION SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT IN THIS PROJECT.
