About this initiative

Summary

The main objective of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (Directive 91/271/EEC) is to protect the environment from adverse effects of waste water discharges from urban areas and certain industrial sectors.

It may identify areas where simplifications or improvements to the legislation or implementation are needed.
