The EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC WFD) is probably the most significant international legislative instrument in the water field. Water management policy as set out in the WFD is focused on surface water as it flows through river basins to the sea. An integrated approach has been introduced for matters concerning water quality and water quantity and the Directive establishes a framework for water management based on river basin districts. Linked to the WFD objectives, a series of milestones has to be complied with, including monitoring programmes.

Every municipality in the developed world has some form of water and wastewater treatment system. This varies from simple outfalls direct to the ocean to very sophisticated activated sludge plants with multiple unit processes dedicated to converting human waste, industrial effluents and storm runoff into clean water discharges and solids acceptable for some form of reuse. inVentures using its gas inFusion technology, has developed the gPRO system for the prevention and remediation of major algae blooms that negatively affect the water quality for millions of people. The company is currently working with several major water authorities on algae prevention programs by efficiently oxygenating specific regions of the water storage areas. Target Oxygenation prevents the build up of algal masses. Algal masses often require expensive treatment remedies and cause major taste and odor issues within drinking water supplies.
