Drinking water and the dutch delta
Author : WENDELA SLOK VEWIN, THE HAGUE, THE NETHERLANDS
ABSTRACT
The quality of drinking water in the Netherlands is good. However, it is important to ensure that the
water does not become polluted. The challenge is to prevent pollution from pesticides, fertilizers,
medicines, soil contamination, salt, etc. The Netherlands is an agricultural country and is located in
the Delta of the Rhine and Meuse rivers. We need to define better environmental quality requirements
and measures to make sure that we have good drinking water now and in the future. It will help if the
EU underlines the importance of complying with the requirements of the Water Framework Directive.
