Drinking Water Quality in Hungary in Line With EU Rules
The quality of drinking water in Hungary is “comfortably” in line with European Union regulations, the Hungarian Water Utility Association (MaVíz) has said.

In the statement issued in response to an EU decision to monitor the levels of two substances impacting the human endocrine system in Hungarian drinking water, MaViz said the review was not a response to irregularities in water samples.

The level of beta-estradiol and nonylphenol have to be monitored on a regular basis to enable water providers to act swiftly in case of growing trace quantities, the authority said.

In line with the decision and Hungarian regulations, water providers check water quality daily in Hungary, the statement said.
