Government consults on pollutants in surface water

The Department for Environment, Food And Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is looking for views on its new proposals for dealing with hazardous substances found in surface waters, published today.
The consultation comes following the EU's Water Framework Directive, published in July, to control 'Priority Substances' - 33 of the most persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic substances, and DEFRA's own regulatory impact assessment.Views will feed into the government's negotiations in Europe in 2007.
