News WWF laments Portugal attitude to drinking water laws

This comes as the environmental organisation WWF expressed its regret that Portugal “continues to ignore laws that ensure water quality”, while criticising the general state of European fresh water resources, on the back of the findings made by the EEA.
Portugal has been identified as one of the countries with deficient legislation in terms of the environment and “this can be seen in the rivers we bathe in the summer, or the water used to irrigate the food we eat”, Ângela Morgado of the ANP Nature Association said in a statement this week.
The World Wide Fund for Nature adds that it is not surprised by findings due to the failures of governments across Europe to apply the law.
