Phase 3: Testing the methods on pilot areas in the GISBLOOM project

Workshops on pilot areas

In 2012 and 2013, two workshops will be organised in each pilot area. These workshops will present the methods and models developed within the project, and assemble use experiences and development suggestions.

Pilot areas include:

  • Lapuanjoki
  • Hiidenvesi
  • Pohjanpitäjänlahti and Tvärminne sea area
  • Pien-Saimaa
  • Vanajavesi
  • Pyhäjärvi (Säkylä)
  • Vesijärvi (Lahti)
  • Vantaanjoki and Helsinki sea area

In addition, test areas for economic models include:

  • Karvianjoki waterway
  • Temmesjoki


The goal is to assess the impacts of various water protection measures on water quality, as well as such measures’ benefits, costs and cost-efficiency. Another aim is to increase interaction between inhabitants and regional operators. The project also supports river basin management planning in accordance with the Water Framework Directive.
