Welcome to the world of environmental protection!

The Environmental Protection and Building Supervision Departments form Ylivieska’s Environmental Unit. The Building and Environmental Council acts as the environmental protection and building supervision authority.

Environmental protection is one the municipality’s legally prescribed duties. The municipality must engage in regional monitoring and promotion of environmental protection so that the protection, management and development of nature and the environment provide the local residents with a healthy, enjoyable, stimulating and ecologically sustainable living environment.

The goal of the permit, notification and supervision practices is for various functions to cause as little environmental damage as possible.

The duties of the environmental protection authorities consist of preliminary supervision (processing of permits and notification), follow-up supervision (supervision related to the Environmental Protection Act, the Waste Act, the Water Act, the Land Extraction Act and other related legislation) as well as long-term preventive activities, environmental planning and monitoring and communication and education.
