Pure and drinkable water in normal and emergency circumstances

Pure and drinkable water delivered by a reliable water supply system is an essential capability for society in both normal and emergency circumstances. The war in Ukraine has proven that also nowadays critical infrastructure is one of the main targets in a military crisis. Finland has a world famous and unique concept for comprehensive security and defence. Finnish military rely on capabilities of society and civilian authorities to contribute to common national defence effort. Finnish Defence Forces troops, and in the future allied troops operating in Finland, also get their water for all purposes from the same facilities as the population. For them pure water delivered in bottles is not a workable primary solution because of our large country, cold climate and high number of military forces operating in different parts of the country in emergency situations. This is why our water supply systems have to guarantee the security of supply and reliable health standards also at exceptional times. This comprehensive approach is not very common in many other countries. The war in Ukraine has shown that the strategy has been successful in defending sovereignty under attack against all functions of their military and civilian society.

Two weeks ago FDF organized several local defence exercises around Finland. Clean water is a prerequisite for maintaining life even in exceptional circumstances. In the local defense exercises, e.g. water refill points are organized with water utilities. The quality of domestic water is always verified by sampling.

Continuous product development ensures an effective, ecological water supply in Finland

It is essential for the water supply to function continuously 24/7, regardless of the situation. Water is needed not only for drinking, cooking, and other household uses but also for wastewater management. Finnish water is one of the purest also according to the Environmental performance index 2022 in the categories of Sanitation and drinking water and Wastewater treatment.

We Finns are used to the fact that no matter where we live in the country, we can safely open the tap to fill a glass or take-along water bottle with good quality drinking water. Finnish domestic water is clean, fresh, clear, and tastes good.

So just open your Insta-bottle and fill it with pure and fresh water and enjoy.
