Lo sostiene la Commissione Europea che nei giorni scorsi ha inviato un forte richiamo al Paese baltico affinché si adegui alle direttive comunitarie.
In proposito ecco un estratto di quanto pubblicato sul sito della Commissione stessa:
“The European Commission is urging Estonia to take measures to combat water pollution caused by nitrates. Nitrates are essential for plants and are widely used as fertilisers, but excess levels cause severe water pollution, with health, economic and environmental consequences. The Commission finds that the Estonian national legislation still does not include sufficient measures to reach the objectives of the Council Directive 91/676/EEC with regard to the establishment of the action programme for zones vulnerable to nitrates pollution. Some of the shortcomings include too short periods when the land application of fertilizers is prohibited and no clear methodology for the general requirement of balanced fertilisation. The Commission is sending a reasoned opinion urging the Estonian authorities to comply with EU law in this area. If they fail to do so within two months, the Commission may refer the case to the Court of Justice of the EU”.
