Press Release: On account of its delay in implementing the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive, Spain is ordered to pay a lump sum of €12 million and a penalty payment of almost €11 million per six-month period of delay

The Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive1 aims to protect the environment from the adverse effects caused by the discharge of urban waste water (domestic water and industrial waste water). That directive provides, among other things, that Member States were to ensure that all agglomerations with a ‘population equivalent’2 of over 15 000 were equipped with collection systems for urban waste water by 31 December 2000 at the latest. Furthermore, urban waste water from such agglomerations must be treated prior to discharge.
