EU clamps down on member states' water quality

Four European countries are in hot water with the European Commission after failing to meet environmental standards for wetland preservation and surface water quality. Greece has been referred to the European Court of Justice after failing to stem pollution of Lake Koroneia – a wetland for 150 bird species and one-time fishing Mecca – that has now become too dirty to bathe in. The European Commission announced on 27 January that it would also be suspending a pledge to pour €20 billion into a lake rehabilitation fund for Koroneia, in the Thessaloniki region.
