Preparation for a New Bathing Water Directive

Price: £14  

The European Commission has proposed a new Bathing Waters Directive which, when adopted, will have significant impacts on the UK water industry. These impacts have been assessed and a methodology for assessing individual costs developed. The major implications for the UK water industry will be to deal with intermittent discharges, with total costs ranging from £30 to £750 million depending on the approach taken to achieve compliance. Other issues need careful management too, for example the impression that the new Directive will give the public that bathing water quality is declining whereas in reality it is improving.
