Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

LUT regularly monitors its water consumption. In 2019, the consumption was 3.18 m3 per person. LUT minimizes its water use with automatically closing water taps and campus vegetation which does not require irrigation. Drinking water is provided free of charge.

Research into water responds to complex water treatment needs and resource recovery from wastewater. The research also benefits local water systems: a pumping station improves water quality in Lake Saimaa, and mud balls clean local waters in Lake Nukkajärvi.

Water-related education is provided e.g. in the Master’s Programme in Water Technology, in the Junior University, and through the scientific platform SAWE – Safe water for all.
