This thesis focuses on climate adaption and the water cycle with emphasis on groundwater and the future development of guidelines for Lejre municipality’s climate adaption plan. This is a problem area which has had less focus then sea level rise, under scale sewerage system and surface water, but can cause just as much damage in the future. In order to gain the right climate adaption one has to consider the local area and precisely cover, how the future climate change will affect on a local scale and determine how to reduce the impact. Through collaboration with the municipality of Lejre the town of Hvalsø became the main focus. The municipality has decided that the future climate adaption plan shall be in amendment with the existing municipality level (kommuneplan). The methodological orientation is inspired by ICLEI Milestone Framework which is complimented by Backcasting and climate adaption in the theoretical orientation. The analysis of this thesis explore how net precipitation and water catchment influences climate, related rising groundwater levels combined with the DK model projection of different climate model in the area of Hvalsø. Furthermore the legislation of groundwater and climate adaption is examined in connection to Lejre Municipality attitude towards the future climate adaption plan. This draws up future guidelines for climate related rising groundwater in the upcoming climate adaption plan for Lejre Municipality, where the municipality is among other encouraged to decide whether they what to focus on groundwater recharge or if they want to ensure the citizen of Hvalsø from future harm from climate related rising groundwater.
