ÅBY RIVER

THE RESTORATION IS FINISHED

ÅBY RIVER HAS ITS SOURCES IN LAKE AUKTSJAUR, SOUTHERN MOSKOSEL IN NORRBOTTEN COUNTY. SEVERAL LARGE SOURCE LAKES CONTRIBUTE WITH WATER TO THE RIVER, WHICH MAKES IT GROW FAST TO A FREE-FLOWING FOREST RIVER. THE LARGEST LAKES IN THE SYSTEM ARE LAKE LAUKER, LAKE VUOTTNER AND LAKE EASTERN KIKKEJAUR.

AFTER THE LAKE EASTERN KIKKEJAUR IS PASSED, LONG SLOW-FLOW AREAS DOMINATE, ALMOST ALL THE WAY TO THE COUNTY BORDER. THE CHARACTER OF THE RIVER CHANGES DRAMATICALLY AFTER RAPID KLUBBFORSEN WHERE SMALLER RAPIDS AND SWIFT AREAS BECOME DOMINANT.

 

THE PROJECT ONLY RESTORE ÅBY RIVER IN NORRBOTTEN COUNTY.
