EU warns Poland on water quality testing

The European Commission has warned Poland that it may face court action if it does not implement EU legislation for monitoring water for pesticide levels. This is the third time that the Commission has asked the country to correctly implement the EU water framework Directive (2000/60), in particular, setting up national monitoring of the level of pesticides and other chemicals in surface and ground water. Poland finally adopted a new water monitoring law in November 2011 but this has created further instances of non-compliance, the Commission says. Proposals to increase the range of pesticides that have to be monitored in the EU waters have recently been issued by the Commission ( Agrow No 633, p 10).
