Sweden has several wastewater treatment plants situated in underground rock. The main features of these plants are described. A major reason for undergrounding is that open-air space is saved in densely built-up areas. The second reason is the possibility for environmental control. An additional advantage is protection against adverse weather conditions. Treatment results and operation will also benefit from the protected conditions underground. Cost considerations and specific problems may be mastered, and, therefore, underground construction of water reclamation plants may now be considered an established technique.
