European Commission

Eighth Report on the Implementation Status and the Programmes for Implementation (as required by Article 17) of Council Directive 91/271/EEC concerning urban waste water treatment

This report combines for the first time data reported by Member States on collection and treatment of urban waste water6 and on implementation programmes7. This gives a clear view on the compliance gaps and the intended action by Member States to fill those gaps, as well as the estimated investment needs and timelines to meet them.

Compendium of Sanitation Systems and Technologies

The Compendium of Sanitation Systems and Technologies was first published in 2008 during the International Year of Sanitation. Since then it has been translated into several languages and distributed digitally by various sector organizations. The document’s popularity lies in its brevity - structuring and presenting a huge range of information on tried and tested technologies in a single document. As in the first edition, we do not consider sanitation technologies that are under development for that exist only as prototypes. Also, we only include “improved” sanitation technologies that provide
safe, hygienic, and accessible sanitation. Like the first edition, we include the whole range of urban, peri-urban and rural technologies (e.g., from single pits to conventional sewers).

The Compendium is a guidance document for engineers and planners in low- and middle-income countries, primarily intended to be used for communicative planning processes involving local communities. It is also intended for persons/experts who have detailed knowledge about conventional high-end technologies and require information on infrastructure and different system configurations. It is not intended as a stand-alone document for engineers, making decisions for the community, e.g., expert-driven decision-making.

Sanitation 21 - A Planning Framework for Improving City-wide Sanitation Services

Sanitation21 is an important component of the global sanitation toolkit, which presents a planning framework based on international best practices. Initially developed in 2006, this updated version builds on recent experiences where good planning has formed an integral part of achieving improvements in urban sanitation.
In the context of this document, planning is essentially about responding to real needs and making informed decisions about investments for sanitation improvements involving the prudent use of resources to meet recognized priorities. It helps to identify where investments are required, secure the necessary finances for implementation, and enable cost-recovery for long-term sustainability of sanitation services.
The document sets out key principles and process guidelines to help city stakeholders develop appropriate and affordable solutions to sanitation problems, taking into account technology issues, management arrangements, institutional challenges and demands for improvement from different stakeholders.

European Court of Audit

EU‑funding of urban waste water treatment plants in the Danube river basin: further efforts needed in helping Member States to achieve EU waste water policy objectives

This report summarizes teh results of a recent European Court of Auditors audit of EU funding of urban waste water treatment in the Danube Watershed. Waste water and sewage sludge can affect the quality of waters and soils. In response to this, the EU has adopted directives and co-financed the building of collecting systems and waste water treatment plants. The Court checked the implementation of the urban waste water treatment directive in four Member States of the Danube river basin. It also examined a sample of 28 treatment plants, to see how they treated waste water, handled sewage sludge and assured financial sustainability. The Court makes recommendations on reporting, on ways to improve effectiveness, efficiency and the sustainability of treatment plants, on the relevance of concentration limits, on the use of sewage sludge and on monitoring pollutants in sludge.

Manual of the Human Rights to Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation for Practitioners

The aim of this Manual is to promote informed decision-making by operators, managers and regulators in their daily routine, as well as to encourage them to engage actively in the national debates that will take place in many countries where the HRWS is being translated into national and local policy, legislation, and regulation.
