Ground water

The effects of construction on groundwater are difficult to anticipate, but builders in Helsinki are assisted by data from long-term groundwater studies.

If the water table lowers or the groundwater flow slows in the Helsinki city centre, buildings resting on wooden piles may be damaged. As a result, it is of particular importance to monitor groundwater in this area.

Groundwater observations

The City actively monitors groundwater at observation points located in various parts of the city.
