  • More rain and a blanket of snow in recent months has helped Sweden's groundwater levels recover significantly after dropping in several parts of the country in recent years.
  • Hydrologist Bo Thundholm says the levels should be in good shape for the summer.
  • In recent years, groundwater levels have dipped nationwide, though the problem was more acute in the southern half of the country.
