Dangerous tap water in some parts of BelgiumTuesday, 13 February 2018 11:52
In Wallonia, where the water grid is older than in Flanders, there has long been a tendency not to devote sufficient funds to properly maintain the infrastructure, according to Benoît Moulin, spokesperson for the Walloon Water Company.
"There are pipes near Mons dating back to the end of the 19th century," he says.
In terms of compliance with European standards on the microbiological quality of drinking water, the communes of Virton (for the period 2014-2016), and Vresse-sur-Semois are singled out, with analyzes detecting a non-compliant rate of bacteria present, according to Le Soir.
Virton differs because the municipality has chosen not to "chlorinate the water permanently, to distribute it pure to consumers", according to explanations given by Alderman Vincent Wauthoz. Chlorine in small quantities is used as disinfection of drinking water.
