ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the European Parliament to vote in favor of strengthening the proposed rules to improve the quality of surface water. The European Commission had planned to fix environmental quality standards for 41 pollutants such as pesticides. However, the Parliament voted to add 30 more substances to the priority list and is now requesting that the Commission ascertain whether these additional chemicals should be classified as priority hazardous substances.
