  • Research and technological development for the supply and use of freshwater resources (SAST project no. 6) : Report on treatment, storage and distribution


The background of the project to which this report contributes is an increasingly widespread concern for freshwater adequacy and availability within the European Community. The project takes in the range of hydrologic, geographic, topographic and climatic conditions in the EC; of infrastructures; of industrial, agricultural and domestic use of freshwater; and of general socio-economic development. It explores RTD options and requirements to achieve a sustainable use and supply of freshwater resources in the Community, and considers the various interactions between water-related RTD and developments in other water-related policy areas, encompassing both water quality and quantity issues. This report, which is one of a set, is concerned with issues relating to the treatment, storage and distribution of freshwater resources.
