Possible Control of EU Priority Substances in Danish Waters


A technical and economic assessment of scenarios for the implementation of an EU Directive for control of 33 priority substances in the aquatic environment has been undertaken.

Solutions to potential problems are suggested, including Community measures for the achievement of the Water Framework Directive reduction targets for priority substances, and the economic consequences are assessed.
