    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


    The research project reported in this book concerned the issue of agricultural pollution of drinking water resources. Emphasis was put on preventive action undertaken by the water supply sector, which was placed in the larger context of European and national policy efforts in the fields of agricultural policy abatement and water quality management. the organizations constituting the water supply sector - water supply companies and regional water authorities - are involved because agricultural pollution affects the performance of their primary tasks, while at the same time they fulfill a function as intermediaries in the implementation of national and EU policy. the control capacity of the water supply sector was designated as the dependent variable in the research design. This final chapter contains some conclusions and policy recommendations concerning the prospects of enlargement of this control capacity.
