Public consultation on the Evaluation of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive is open

The consultation aims to collect views on how the urban waste water treatment directive (Council Directive 91/271/EEC concerning urban waste water treatment), has affected urban waste water collection and treatment across the EU and thereby improved the state of our water bodies and the environment in general.

The consultation has as objective on the one hand to gather general views from the public on their understanding and relation with (waste) water and on the other hand to gather more detailed information and opinions from experts and public and private entities in charge of implementation on the specificities of the directive.

You can contribute to this public consultation by filling out the online questionnaire via EU Survey.

The questionnaire is accessible in all official EU languages (except Irish). Replies may be submitted in any EU official language.  

The questionnaire has two parts. One part aimed at the general public, and one part with more detailed, technical questions aimed at experts. You are invited to reply to both parts of the questionnaire, but you may reply to only one of the parts if you wish.

It will take about 20-30 minutes to answer the questionnaire. You may pause the questionnaire at any time and continue later. Once you have submitted your answers, you can download a copy of your completed responses.

The project investigates the feasibility of quantifying reductions of pesticide pollution in Swiss streams triggered by the National Pesticide Action Plan. Specifically, it investigates how well temporal trends in pesticide concentration data series from established monitoring programs can be detected and how such trends can be extrapolated across the Swiss river network. The results from the project will be used to formulate guidelines for practitioners how to evaluate such data in the future. The project will adapt existing model tools to simulate existing pesticide data sets in Switzerland, to estimate predictive uncertainty and to derive practical recommendations for future data analysis.

Regionalization of Water Supply and Sewerage Companies as a Solution for the Efficiency of Water Supply and Sewerage Sector: Case of Albania

The aim of this paper is to analyze the efficiency of water supply and sewerage sector in Albania. The study focuses on the current situation of water supply and sewerage companies for the entire year 2011, as well an analysis of factors creating premises for achieving efficiency benefits. For the purposes of this study an analysis of three performance indicators that have a serious impact on the financial sustainability of a typical water and sewerage company is carried out using the data from the Performance Monitoring and Benchmarking Program for all water companies in Albania. The data are calculated based on weighted average basis for groupings of water companies/utilities using the “population served” by the company as the basis of “scale”. The main result of the analysis is that the potential for economies of scale can exist in the case of Albania since 74% of water supply and sewerage companies serve a number of populations of less than 50,000 inhabitants. The result of the analysis shows that an increase in served population will normally be related to an increased population density, which also direclty contributes to achieving economies of scale and getting above a served population of 100,000 people are where economies of scale can start to make a real difference. In order to achieve this efficiency, the aggregation of companies and creation of regions may be the solution for this efficiency to be realized.
