Measures for water protection

The federal water protection legislation promotes the rehabilitation of rivers and lakes with a view to restoring their natural functions and boosting their social benefits. An additional treatment stage shall be added to wastewater treatment plants to reduce micropollutant levels in water bodies.

High-level instruments

The FOEN provides various instruments, for example watershed management, to ensure that watercourses and water bodies can be protected in a way that does not interfere with the use of water and the protection against water hazards.
