The EU Water Framework Directive set the objective of the achievement of the good status objective for European water bodies by 2015. Significant progress have been made, but improvements in water quality in the EU could be at risk from new forms of chemical pollution. Hence, the Commission is proposing to add 15 chemicals to the list of 33 pollutants that are monitored and controlled in EU surface waters. This is another step towards improving the quality of our river, lake and coastal waters.
