This article reveals that the British Environment Agency is pushing for more phosphorus stripping at sewage treatment works to be included in water and sewerage asset management plans for the next five years in a bid to meet the new standards of the Water Framework Directive. The industry is also being urged by the agency to investigate options to reduce other chemicals restricted under the directive. Options to reduce diffuse pollution will also be examined.
