Abstract

This symposium was organised by the Road, Traffic and Geotechnical Laboratory of the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) and The Finnish-French Association for Scientific and Technical Research. The interest of the Road, Traffic and Geotechnical Laboratory was in connection with the research work conducted in the field of water supply. The Finnish-French Association for Scientific and Technical Research organises yearly several symposiums between France and Finland on many fields of technology together with its counterpart in France. The Finnish papers are mainly State-of-the-Art report of the administration and management of water supply and sewerage in Finland. Included are papers covering the technology of drinking water purification and the biological treatment of waste water of the pulp and paper industry. The use of databases in connection with municipal networks are presented. The up-to-day development of plastic pipes is presented by UPONOR one of the biggest companies in the plastic pipes industry in the world. The French papers cover more specific topics. In addition to the general information on the French water distribution management, there are papers dealing with applications used in water purification such as the use of ozone and granular activated carbon (GAC). The use of databases and relevant computer applications are discussed as well. An interesting application of water meter protection against cold is also presented. In connection to the symposium the following technical visits were arranged: UPONOR Plastic Pipe Factory, Water and Sewage Works of City of Helsinki and Tuusula Region Water Works. The seminar provided opportunities to exchange information and research results in many areas of expertise, but also to establish contacts on a more personal basis.
