Clean and circular water: an opportunity to foster healthier cities and regions

Clean and circular water: an opportunity to foster healthier cities and regions

The Council of European Municipalities and Regions and Eurocities are joining forces to organise an event during the EU Green Week dedicated to clean and circular water – in the framework of the Zero Pollution Action Plan for water, and the revision of the Urban Waste Water Treatment directive. 

EU policy on water issues has been particularly fervent in recent times. New EU rules on water reuse and initiatives – kicked-off lately to align urban waste water legislation with the ambition of the European Green Deal – together with the recently published Zero Pollution Action Plan, will provide excellent conditions for instilling more sustainability and circularity into the water management sector in the near future. 

Municipalities and regions in fact play a decisive role in counteracting most of the worrying trends on water: they are engaged in increasing the sustainability and circularity of the water management sector to better protect water as well as citizens’ health from the hazards that may be engendered by human activities.
