Minimum quality requirements for water reuse in agricultural irrigation and aquifer recharge (2019)

Description

Although the use of reclaimed water is an accepted practice in several EU countries, the uptake of water reuse solutions remains limited in comparison with their potential. The report underlines that one of the main barriers on water resuse is the lack of harmonization in the regulatory framework to manage health and environmental risks related to water reuse at the EU level, and thus a lack of confidence in the health and environmental safety of water reuse practices. The development of minimum quality requirements for water reuse for agricultural irrigation and aquifer recharge at EU level have the aim of helping to overcome this barrier.
