Ground Water

There are more than 50 ground-water sites in the Oulu region. The layer of earth protecting the ground water is mostly thin, making the risk of contamination resulting from factors such as incorrect land use quite high. Decontamination of contaminated ground water sites is both difficult and expensive.

The protection plans are aimed to ensure the preservation of ground-water sites as usable without undue restrictions to other forms of land use.
