European Union targets water Contaminants.
"Aquathin OP-ED Commentary"
The "Evolution of Awareness" is getting accelerated in Europe. I can recall not so long
ago, various water authorities in Europe heralding, with almost utter sanctity, "our water
is fine and no need for silly water filters!" As you will read, Europe is now trying to do
the right thing...even if it takes 20 years. The continuing problem is that of the vast
contaminates they now admit are in the environment and wish to regulate, they fail
to advise they have no program in place for treating what already is present.
Our presentation states "...the water we were told was safe to drink 20 years ago, was
not safe by today's standards...and you can be sure the laws will be more protective 20
years from now. We at Aquathin will not allow our families to wait for the safest
water...that's why we produce the most effective reverse osmosis water purification
systems today". Now how's that for forsight !!!!!!!!!
"Remember...the next best thing to owning an Aquathin is recommending one to a friend! Consult your Local, National and
BRUSSELS, BELGIUM — As a follow-up to its recent Water
Framework Directive, the European Commission has proposed a
priority "hit list" of 32 water pollutants.
The commission said that after the council and the European
Parliament had adopted the list, it would propose water quality
standards and emission controls for these chemicals. The
commission's goal is to stop all releases of substances on the list
classified as priority hazardous substances — such as mercury, and
cadmium — to the aquatic environment within 20 years.
For another 11 of the priority substances, including lead and several
herbicides, the commission is proposing that a study be conducted
by 2003 to determine whether they should be classified as
additional priority hazardous substances.
"This final step of the long process to adopt and implement the
Water Framework Directive is a milestone in water policy, not only
for the community, but also in a global context," said Environment
Commissioner Margot Wallström. "We will tackle pollutants that we
have known well for years and others which came to our attention
only more recently."
