NOW IT IS POSSIBLE TO APPLY FOR FUNDING FROM THE PYHÄJÄRVI RESTORATION PROGRAMME TOWARDS THE PURCHASE OF A COMPOST LAVATORY


For the purpose of promoting water protection efforts, the Pyhäjärvi Restoration Programme will grant aid for purchasing a compost lavatory to be fitted to a site which is located within the Lake Pyhäjärvi drainage basin. The maximum sum is 100 € and it may, at most, cover 50% of the total price of the lavatory. 

The site must fulfill the following requirements:

- It must be located within the Pyhäjärvi drainage basin next to a ditch, stream or river that flows into the lake

- The original receipt must be posted to the Pyhäjärvi Institute 

- No compost lavatory grant has previously been approved for the site

Applications will be processed individually and the application period is on-going. The grant will be paid towards the original receipt once the lavatory has been installed. It is not possible to receive the grant for constructing a lavatory building.

The application form
(in Finnish) can be found here

Please print out the application and send it by post together with the receipt to the Pyhäjärvi Institute:

A PYHÄJÄRVI PROTECTION EVENT WAS HELD IN SUMMER 2011
 
The biannual Pyhäjärvi Protection Event was this year combined with the Ruukki Festival. The venue was hosted by the Pyhäjärvi Institute and event topics included current fishing issues, dispersed settlement waste waters and Lake Pyhäjärvi itself of course. The event was in association with the Pyhäjärvi Rescue Service Association and Firiends of Lake Pyhäjärvi that were responsible for the childrens` area. Thank you for your support! See you again in 2013!

FUNDING FOR BIOMANIPULATION FISHING IN LAKE PYHÄJÄRVI WAS GRANTED FROM THE NATIONAL BUDGET

LAKE PYHÄJÄRVI USE AND MANAGEMENT PLAN

Use and management planning for the lakes Köyliönjärvi and Pyhäjärvi Natura 2000 areas was carried out at the Pyhäjärvi Institute under an ongoing scheme called Competitiveness from Lake Pyhäjärvi Nature. The plans have now been completed. For more information

PRO PYHÄJÄRVI

The Pro Pyhäjärvi series of articles has been published monthly since 1995. The articles are published in the Alasatakunta and Auranmaa weekly papers. The newest article in the series, as well as all the other articles that have been published so far, are also available on the web (in Finnish).

THE AUTOMATIC MEASURING STATION ON LAKE PYHÄJÄRVI MONITORED WATER QUALITY AGAIN IN SUMMER 2012
 

The floating automatic lake measuring station that produces real-time information on water quality and weather conditions has once again been anchored at the Lake Pyhäjärvi basin. The station measures variables such as weather parameters, water temperature and oxygen content from the whole water column. The station also measures water turbidity and chlorophyll-a, which are related to the lake`s trophic state.

This summer the automatic measuring station belonging to Finland`s environmental administration (SYKE) was anchored at the southern end of Lake Pyhäjärvi. The station provided a continuous measurement of water quality and weather conditions. Data provided by the station is primarily used for water protection and research but also for monitoring the ecological condition of the lake. Lake Pyhäjärvi weather conditions, together with all the other data, are available on the web to all who may be interested.

The floating station was taken out for winter at the end of October 2012.

The measuring station is part of CatchLake2 follow-up scheme (2008-2009) funded by Tekes (the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation). The scheme focuses on Lake Pyhäjärvi research. The subject of the scheme is remote sensing: developing real-time measuring techniques in the lake and catchment area and process-based modeling of a lake.
