Safe and clean drinking water: EU updates quality standards

The EU is ensuring that tap water across the EU is safe to drink. The Council today adopted its position on the proposal to revise the drinking water directive. The proposed new rules update the quality standards drinking water must meet and introduce a cost-effective risk-based approach to monitoring water quality. They also contain new provisions on materials in contact with drinking water and on improving access to water. The revision is a direct result of the first-ever successful European citizens’ initiative ‘Right2Water’
