This letter urges EU Water Directors to reject proposals to further weaken the European Commission’s proposal to update the lists of priority pollutants of surface and groundwater. It also calls on Directors not to use the ongoing limited update of the chemical aspects to make substantial changes to basic principles of the Water Framework Directive (WFD), thus undermining the fitness check evaluation of the WFD and resulting in delayed action on tackling water pollution.

Water pollution worsens water scarcity, drives biodiversity loss, is hugely expensive to clean up and results in our exposure to toxic chemicals.
