Water quality in Europe. Deteriorating water quality in Europe led to the introduction of the EU Water Framework Directive, one of the most comprehensive EU direc-tives formulated to date. The Directive replaces the previous fragmentary collection of directives and management strategies for water and facili-tates integrated policy. An overarching perspective on Europe's water resources will lead the way to the ultimate goal: To create and maintain good water status and sustainable water use. This overarching perspective permeates the new water administrations, which are based on catchment area. The countries of Europe have been divided into water districts, each managed by a separate water authority. The role of the water authorities is to make decisions re-garding the environmental goals for water and ensure that these goals are achieved within their individual district. The main tools available are introduction of remediation programmes and management plans, which will place demands on all actors within the catch-ment area who are using or influencing the water. The ability of these actors to co-operate and collaborate with each other and their implementation of remedial measures in practice will be decisive in achieving the goals. One of the most important actors in catchment areas with intensive cropping are potato and vegetable growers.
