Launch of Public Consultation on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive

In parallel to the Fitness Check on the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and its related directives, the European Commission (EC) is conducting a separate Evaluation of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) to assess its functioning over the past decades.
To support this, a public consultation was launched by the EC on 13th July 2018 in order to collect the views and feedback of stakeholders and citizens. The consultation can be accessed under the following link and is available in all 23 EU languages: https://ec.europa.eu/info/consultations/public-consultation-evaluation-urban-waste-water-treatment-directive_en. It will remain open until 19th October 2018.
