EU legislation on Water quality management wastewater reuse and preventive measure

Description

Water security is the overarching goal of water management, including leveraging productive aspects of water for human well-being, livelihoods, environment and socio-economic development, and the management of destructive impacts of water such as floods, droughts, pollution to protect societies, economy and the environment. While water is a central issue in water security, it is increasingly clear that this goes beyond single sector single issue topics and it percolates into all parts of society and economy. It is not sufficient to allocate scarce resources and clean up pollution. Pollution is an issue that we cannot ignore. The main types of pollution you need to be aware of are air, water and noise. If you don’t put precautionary measures in place to manage harmful waste, it can directly affect site employees and people living nearby. Water Security is about building a water secure future for the people, the economy and the environment in the face of global challenges. It places water management, services delivery and water risk management in the broader context of the country’s development path and is therefore aimed at a broader dialogue on future pathways and how water may constrain or leverage opportunities Wastewater effluent entering the lake poses an immediate health risk to those using it as a drinking-water source. This document also includes performance indicators to satisfy the suitability of the recycled water (treated wastewater) for the required use by considering a number of parameters related to environmental, personnel, physical and operational indicators. The proposed indicators comply in general with the quality standards that are in force in most European countries considering also the 2006 WHO guidelines for safe water reuse. It is crucial to underline that each wastewater treatment plant is unique and the operation of a particular process should always be based on its specific performance and response to the control technique applied. This may require the process to be run outside the typical range of the operating parameters presented in this document. Kosovo has the combined factors of low water resources availability, low storage and poor implementation of water resources management functions. Because demand has been suppressed and people have grown accustomed to low level of service, this situation has been manageable, but will not be so for longer as climate changes, society and economy develop and with environmental values remaining in flashing red.
