Turku Region Water Ltd.
Turku Region Water Ltd. is a wholesale water company providing drinking water for the nine Turku region municipalities. The company has been responsible for the planning and developing of water distribution in the Turku region for over 40 years.
Turku Region Water has chosen the managed aquifer recharge method to secure the water production of the region. Nowadays the company is the second largest water producer in Finland and annually delivers over 23 million cubic metres of water to ca. 300 000 customers.
Ecological water production
Turku Region Water Ltd. produces artificially recharged groundwater, which is purified by natural methods. The purification process of the artificially recharged groundwater is similar to the formation of natural groundwater, but the process is controlled and optimized. The pre-treated water is infiltrated into the esker, after which it flows in the aquifer for three months.
The produced groundwater is pumped and transferred to consumers via a pipeline. At the end of the pipeline, there's a turbine that generates part of the electricity used in the production process.
