Evaluation of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive

The main objective of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) 91/271/EEC is to protect the environment from the adverse effects of waste water discharges from urban areas and certain industrial sectors by setting requirements for the collection and treatment of urban waste water. The evaluation will assess five criteria: effectiveness, coherence, efficiency, relevance, and EU added value by analysing the Directive’s requirements and implementation in the last 25 years in the entire EU5. The findings of the evaluation will feed into the Commission’s reflection on possible further action.
