status reports on soil and water

The reform in the Finnish Environmental Act (2014) requires that the proprietor must draft a status report, if the facility’s operations include the use, production or discharge to environment of hazardous materials that could cause contamination for soil or water.

Status report is based on bringing the  Industrial Emissions Directive (IED, 2010/75/EU) as part of the national legislation.

floods risk assessment

Risk assessment in accordance with the Floods Directive (2007/60/EC), The Directive on the Assessment and Management of Flood Risks, requires local municipalities to assess the flood risks caused by rainwater, water systems and sea water in their area.

Based on this assessment, possible significant areas of flood risk will be designated for which flood hazard- and flood risk maps and management plans will be drawn up. The first round of the implementation of the directive will be phased in between 2011 and 2015.

Our experienced staff will prepare the assessments, maps and plans required by the directive with the aid of modelling tools. The flood management plans will be used as a guide to investment in new construction, and the aim is to minimise the harmful effects of floods in the built environment. In addition to economic losses, floods can also cause great damage to the society and the environment.

You can read the Floods Directive and find out more at the Finnish Environmental Administration’s website.
