Some of the main issues concerning environmental objectives of surface water and groundwater status, as well as wastewater in Slovakia are:

  • to ensure the connection to the public sewerage network of all inhabitants living in agglomerations with more than 10 000 inhabitants by the end of 2010,

  • to ensure the discharge and full biological treatment of wastewater in agglomerations with more than 2 000 inhabitants by the end of 2015,

  • to implement measures with the aim to reduce pollution by priority substances gradually and to cease or phase out emissions, discharges and losses of priority hazardous substances by December 2020.
