Industrial emissions to water decreased in Europe but current levels are still a challenge for European waters (Wed, 20 Mar 2019)
Direct emissions released to water bodies from Europe’s large industrial sites have decreased in recent years for many pollutants.

While EU legislation tracks emissions from large industries, the extent of emissions from many small facilities remain largely unknown at European level. These are the key findings of a new European Environment Agency (EEA) analysis on data reported to the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) and under EU legislation on water.
