News WATER NEWS - Issue n00 - Winter 2010

Water is essential for life. Clean drinking water is at the basis of human life. However, the access to water has a limit. Different studies show an increase on the demand of water in developing countries. Thus, it is important to manage the water, treat the wastewater to ensure there will be enough water for future generations.A sustainable water and wastewater services is at the core of EUREAU’s mission. In EUREAU we know as well that water is very sensitive and strictly dependent on climate conditions. Our sector depends on climate change. Climate change is already affecting the water sector from its source material to its customer base and its recycling routes.  At the same time, the sector is impacted by climate change and contributes to it.Keeping all the different factors that can affect the water sector, EUREAU works with a wide variety of stakeholders to ensure the environmental sustainability of Europe’s water sector. As president of EUREAU, I really hope you will enjoy the reading of this Water News newsletter and you’ll find the information useful.
