Water Policy issued
A Water Policy for the Maltese Islands launched today by the Malta Resources Authority is aimed at tackling water management, water use and re-use and harnassing all national resources.
The policy had been announced last year, when it was opened for public consultation.
Manuel Sapiano, an official at the regulation unit of the Malta Resources Authority said the main policy areas are the supply of good quality water for human consumption, sustainable groundwater use, water demand management, and the use of non-conventional water resources.
The policy also deals with rainwater harvesting and the protection of water resources from pollution.
