Author: P.J. Newman
Document Type: Monograph
This report summarises developments in environmental legislation and European practice over the period from November 1988 to May 1989. This has been a very active period and has seen the adoption of one new Directive and the introduction of a number of proposals for future directives with particular relevance to the Water Industry. Also included in the report are details of studies on dangerous substances and of surveys of European bathing water quality and of the implementation of the Drinking Water Directive in six EC Member States. WRc's links with the European Institute for Water and with the World Health Organisation are also described. This report is the second in a series of occasional reports issued by ESL on environmental legislation and practice in response to a need for current awareness briefings identified by the Water Industry.
