Creating awareness to reduce drug residues in water

Creating awareness to reduce drug residues in water

Controlling drug residues in the water systems is a hot topic in Dutch national and European water policy agendas. Most studies into this topic have focused on finding solutions in the treatment of wastewater, be it centralized and/or decentralized actions. More and more, however, measures regarding other stakeholders are being explored as well, although these solution paths have received less attention. Until now! Water board Groot Salland is interested if you and your team can come up with innovative ways in which the general public can become more aware of the impact of medicinal use on the water environment. This will be the first step towards a shared sense of urgency and societal pressure, of which we believe will lead to a broadly supported approach to the pressing problem of drug residues in surface waters.
