The proposed European Union provisions for safe and clean drinking water include substantial revisions to existing drinking water standards. These represent some of the most extensive requirements affecting the drinking water industry ecosystem, including water suppliers, testing laboratories, and water conveyance system manufacturers. It is prudent for environmental testing labs and drinking water suppliers to evaluate and plan for the far-reaching impacts this legislation will have.
