New EMODnet Human Activities blog
Recently, EMODnet Human Activities published a new blog on the website on wastewater.
In the EU, the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive (UWWTD; Council Directive 91/271/EEC) requires Member States to set up collecting and treatment systems for urban wastewaters. The Member States are required to monitor discharges from urban wastewater treatment as well as the amounts and composition of sludges disposed to surface waters. Based on data corresponding to year 2014, EMODnet Human Activities created two new geodatabases, one on urban wastewater treatment plants (Urban Wastewater Treatment Plants, UWWTPs) and one on discharge points.
