Almost two thirds of the European citizens consider water quality and/or quantity in their country to be a serious problem. The impacts of climate change have presented enormous challenges for the water sector. Water management also impinges significantly on agriculture, land planning and energy. The ageing of the water infrastructure in many European countries creates additional challenges. The most apparent problems in this respect concern bursting and leaking of the pipelines. In many European countries there is an increasing lack of qualified staff to operate and maintain the water infrastructure.
