Water is a crucial part of everyday life for companies and private users. Clean water is a prerequisite for life, yet it is not a given. Water involves various work areas, of which drinking water, industrial and private wastewater and other water mains are the most important areas in the Faroe Islands.

At SMJ, we have a great deal of knowledge about water, both in the form of water works, water supply and wastewater discharges. We offer municipalities and manufacturing companies advice on the treatment of drinking water, and we also advise on the purification and discharge of wastewater. The legislation on wastewater quality and discharge in the Faroe Islands is limited, and most often there is no need for treatment if the wastewater is discharged to the ocean current, which is believed to dilute it sufficiently. Nevertheless, we have a broad knowledge of wastewater management and advise within mechanical and biological systems. We always strive to form a good overview of the task and thus guarantee an excellent and sustainable water system of high quality, with a focus on biodiversity and security of supply.
