Turn on the tap: EU acts to improve water, reduce plastic

EU acts to improve water, reduce plastic
The European Union is revamping its water quality rules to address possible new health hazards and limit plastic waste by discouraging people from drinking bottled water.

The European Commission said Thursday the rules will oblige the bloc's 28 countries to improve access to drinking water and better inform citizens about water quality, be it from taps or bottles.

It hopes the move will improve confidence in local tap water and wean people off bottles, which are among the most common plastic items found on European beaches.
