Working to recover water in Pays de la Loire

11% only of watercourses in Pays de la Loire achieve good ecological status. Recovering good water status is a major challenge for the years to come. The LIFE REVERS’EAU project responds to this pressing need.
How? By further mobilising local stakeholders and by encouraging the implementation of large-scale initiatives.
