The article focuses on the criticisms of the European Parliament's Environmental Committee against the European Council proposals to amend the 1980 Groundwater Framework Directive. Several first-reading amendments were reintroduced as members of the European Parliament showed their dissatisfaction with the Council's common position, which they said did not pay sufficient attention to pollution prevention. The adopted text imposes single standards for nitrates and pesticides.
