Water reuse for agricultural irrigation: Council adopts general approach

The EU is taking new measures to reduce the risk of shortages of water for irrigating crops. The Council today adopted its position (general approach) on a regulation which facilitates the use of urban waste water for agricultural irrigation.

These new rules will help Europe adapt to the consequences of climate change. The regulation, which is fully in line with the circular economy, will improve the availability of water and encourage its efficient use. Ensuring that enough water is available for the irrigation of fields, in particular during heatwaves and severe droughts, can help prevent crop shortfall and food shortage.
