    Overall we commend the proposal for the revision of the Drinking Water Directive (DWD). In particular the wider application of the water safety plan approach is to be applauded. We welcome the inclusion of Legionella which is a significant cause of waterborne illness in Europe. However we have reservations about the proposed methods of testing for Legionella and the parametric levels. The proposal to test for Legionella species first and...

    · Per la prima volta la legge regola la presenza dei PFAS (secondo la definizione dell’OECD) nell’acqua potabile. Tuttavia, ritengo che i limiti proposti dalla direttiva non siano sufficienti a tutelare la salute umana e non tengano conto del principio di precauzione, un fondamento cardine della tutela ambientale a livello comunitario. Vi chiedo pertanto di rivedere i limiti al ribasso, stabilendo valori prossimi allo zero, e che...

I miei fiumi, la mia terra, gli ortaggi e i prodotti agricoli e degli allevamenti, la mia acqua potabile e il mio sangue e quello dei miei figli sono inquinati da PFAS. Ritengo che i limiti per i PFAS proposti nella direttiva Revision of the Drinking Water Directive (RECAST 2017) non siano sufficienti a tutelare adeguatamente la mia salute e quella...

    Sono Emilio Gregori, sono nato e vivo in Veneto (Italia) in una delle zone più contaminate al mondo da PFAS. La nostra falda, che interessa tre province Vicenza, Padova e Verona è altamente inquinata. Ritengo che i limiti per le sostanze perfluoroalchiliche proposti in Revision of the Drinking Water Directive non siano sufficienti a tutelare la salute di tutti noi. Infatti, i limiti attuali, non sono stati sufficienti ad impedire questa grave...

    Art.2: We note that the definition of water suppliers should be by service or system supplied and not just by the amount of people or m3 supplied (some suppliers provide water to several service/system) and that the group “large supplier” includes rather small ones. Art.5+Annex I: We suggest to embrace the WHO recommendations for the parametric values and/or grant extra time (15 years) after the end-date for transposition, to adapt and to...
