A shared vision at regional level for improved water quality
Water is a major component of our region. The Loire, as the backbone, is irrigated by a number of tributaries. Water is found both in large wetlands on the coast, in the low valleys of Angers or even in lakes such as the Lac naturel de Grand Lieu. This large water footprint provides a haven for a rich biodiversity in its aquatic environments and remarkable landscapes. However, domestic, economic and agricultural water use, may increase strain on the aquatic ecosystems. The partnership approach of the LIFE REVERS’EAU project ensures an overview of the actions led by the stakeholders concerned. It promotes adhesion and joint involvement for the benefit of water recovery in the Pays de la Loire region.
European framework directive on water
The Water Framework Directive (2000/60 / EC) commits the States of the European Union to achieve the objective of good status for all water by 2027. It responds to a pressing need in terms of the quality of water. water at European level. France and particularly the Pays de la Loire region are affected by pollution phenomena, hydrographic basin developments, and the increase in drought and flood events. In France, the first water “management plans” included in the WFD were approved in 2009. These are the master plans for water development and management (SDAGE). The Pays de la Loire region is concerned by the implementation of the SDAGE for the Loire-Bretagne basin.
