Env MEPs support more checks on ais in water

Members of the European Parliament’s Environment Committee have supported plans to establish a “watch list” of up to 25 substances that could become candidates for water pollution controls. The European Commission proposed the list earlier this year, although EU member states are concerned over the extra monitoring costs ( Agrow No 642, p 13). The Committee added three pharmaceuticals to the 15 substances, including seven pesticides, that the Commission wants to add to the list of “priority substances” subject to water pollution controls. The MEPs’ report goes forward for a full parliamentary vote in April.
