Abstract
This Master's thesis work was carried out at Lund University’s Faculty of Engineering in conjunction with Sydvatten AB, Southern Sweden's drinking water provider and their research division Sweden Water Research. The purpose of the study was to gain an understanding of the runoff response in the Kävlinge River Basin and study the increased runoff that is expected to occur due to climate change using the modeling program HEC-HMS, the hydrological engineering center of the Army Corps of Engineers Hydrologic Modeling System. Additionally statistical and seasonal patterns were evaluated to provide Sydvatten with a basis for further climate change studies and documentation that assesses the level of risk that is associated for Vomb Lake.

Additionally statistical and seasonal patterns were evaluated to provide Sydvatten with a basis for further climate change studies and documentation that assesses the level of risk that is associated for Vomb Lake. The study showed that Sydvatten’s water supply at Vomb Lake is expected to be significantly impacted by climate change and has resulted in percentage estimates of precipitation and flow increases in the basin.
