Upcoming Legislative Proposals on Water

On the occasion of the World Water Day on the 22 March, European Commissioner Katainen, Commissioner Hogan, and Commissioner Vella released a joint statement on the topic of water. In this statement, the Commissioners affirm that the Commission will propose in 2017 a revision for the Drinking Water Directive as well as a proposal to encourage further uptake of reused urban waste water for agriculture and to recharge groundwater aquifers, “showing that circular economy can be concretely deployed in many economic sectors with win-win solutions”. The issue of water reuse was recently discussed at the EuCheMS workshop From Waste to Health.
