Water and water quality

Climate change, the increase in extreme weather events and growth in the world population all challenge humanity to seek local and global solutions to water problems.

The Finnish Environment Institute monitors surface water and groundwater volumes and quality. Information on water is needed by all sectors of society, including farming, industry and transport. The information is also needed by private individuals, for example, when they are using water from wells.

In the winter, the Finnish Environment Institute also produces information on frost, the thickness of ice and the snow load on the roofs of houses. In spring, it issues reports on flooding. In summer, information is provided on swimming water temperatures. Algal blooms are monitored in more than 300 monitoring sites all over the country, from lakes to sea areas. Citizens can also report their algal bloom observations.
