Copenhagen clean-up: Swimmers able to take harbour plunge

The Danish capital Copenhagen has been considered a leading model of urban sustainability for other cities of the world, where its initiatives and strategies have been focused on the development of public space.
The city has built facilities that allow people to swim directly in the water of the port, starting with a decade of efforts to clean the water of the area, strategies for the diversion of wastewater, construction of overflow barriers, creation of underground water storage tanks and daily monitoring of water quality. After this process, the adaptation of the spaces began so that citizens could enjoy and access the water that is no longer contaminated.
