Many parts of Europe are currently well provided with freshwater but it is unevenly distributed within countries, causing shortages in a number of areas. A wide range of hazardous chemicals has been found in the water but evidence of their impact on health has been identified with long-term consumption. Not all households in Europe are supplied with piped drinking water; rural populations in the east of the continent are less served.
