European Water Policies and Human Health

Report prepared by the European Environment Agency, published in November 2016.

The EEA report entitled "European Water Policies and Human Health" provides a joint review of three key legislative acts that underpin water management in the EU – the Bathing Water Directive, the Drinking Water Directive and the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive, all contributing to the achievement of the overall goals set by the Water Framework Directive. EU water legislation contributes significantly to ensuring public health and protecting the environment all throughout Europe.
