7th EWA Brussels Conference

"Effective Urban Waste Water Treatment - a key prerequisite for successful implementation of the Water Framework Directive"

(lifePR) ( Brussels, Belgium, )
Directive 91/271/EEC concerning urban waste water treatment has driven major investments on the collection and treatment of waste water in all settlement areas (the so-called agglomerations) of more than 2000 inhabitants. As such, the Directive is a key element to achieve the goals of the water Framework Directive and is to be included in the programme of measures as basic component. Clear deadlines have been set, however, transition periods have been granted to the 12 Member States which have joined the EU since 2004 so that deadlines for them are staggered up to 2015 (in one case until 2018.

The Annual EWA Brussels Conference, in cooperation with the European Commission DG Environment, is a unique opportunity to take stock on the implementation of Directive 91/271/EEC and its contribution in achieving the goals of the Water Framework Directive.

The event brings together more than one hundred high level water professionals, experts and decision- makers. As such, the EWA conference aims to present stakeholders' views and to stream implementation feedback from those working in the field. With the organisation of this conference, EWA intends to provide a valuable contribution to the ongoing debates on the EU Water Policy Fitness Check and 2012 blueprint
