Ecorys Review of the EU Drinking Water Directive

Ecorys Review of the EU Drinking Water Directive

The European Commission adopted a proposal for a revised drinking water directive on the first of February 2017, to improve the quality of drinking water and provide greater access and information to citizens.

The results of Ecorys’ evaluation of the Directive and the recommendations stemming from the impact assessment of various policy options, have largely been taken forward in the  COM  proposal for a revised Drinking Water Directive.

The revised Directive further integrates findings and recommendations on drinking water parameters by the WHO, it responds to the European Citizens’ Initiative ‘Right2Water‘ and is a contribution to the sixth UN Sustainable Development Goal.
