je suis d'accord pour que l'eau soit gérée par un Service public soucieux du bien commun et de l'égalité, de l'équité d'accès et du contrôle de son usage ( canalisations en bon état, traitement sain, prix en fonction des revenus/utilisation)

Indeed the access to a drinkable water has been recognized by the UN in 2010 as a human right so water must be considered as a common good and not as a merchandise : it’s a necessity for humanity’s survival . In order to solve this problem, we must create a regulation on a European scale which must be written in the national rights of member states of the European Union according to their convenience . This requires that public authorities must forbide to entrust the maintenance and the exploitation of the running water network to private service providers. This first regulation will involve an inclusive and progressive pricing system without risking to propose to customers an abusive price. Indeed the first water cubic meters are necessary for human needs (defined by each member state according to the climate) and mustn’t be invoiced.Moreover a private service provider could impact the difference on the following cubic meter and too much water is wasted such as in France (1 out of 5 litres of drinkable water is lost in our channelings so that’s approximately 430 000 Olympic swimming pool each year). We must entrust the responsibility to a public service provider such as citizens.

Following the steps that have been taken for energy saving in building across Europe, European Union should also take measures about water saving in private and public buildings and in industry. Renovation of plumping systems should be funded and every building or industry should have a water management plan.

European Union have to do some changes with fiscal policy to protect the environment, for example to raise the car taxis(fuel, insurance etc.) after that will refuse the number of cars. Then, everyone who can't pay the taxis will use bus or train or anything else except car and I believe this is a good step for human survival.
