Preserving water quality: drinking water distribution and sewage treatment
The worsening quality of our water resources, which is linked partly to inadequate sewage treatment, was also a subject worked upon by the Office which devoted a report to these problems. The work by its rapporteurs found a fruitful continuation with the debate on the draft Bill on the distribution, policing and protection of water that received widespread support during discussion. Law no. 92-3 of 3 January 1992 is fully encompassed by the "environment" element of the Office’s work and should contribute to improving water quality in France. After one year, the Minister for the Environment also provided the Office with a review of the subject, in accordance with article 48 of law no. 92-3.
