Concessions in the water sector
are often subject to specific and complex arrangements
which require a particular consideration
given the importance of water as a public good of fundamental value
to all EU citizens.
The special features of those arrangements
justify exclusion in the field of water from the scope of this
The exclusion will cover works and services concessions
to provide or operate fixed networks
intended to provide a service to the public
in connection with the production, transport or distribution
of drinking water
or supply drinking water to such networks.
Concession services for disposal or treatment
and for hydraulic engineering projects,
or land drainage(provided that the volume of waterto be used for the supply of drinking water
represents more than 20 % of the total volume of
water made available by suchprojects or irrigation
or drainage installations)shall also be excluded
insofar as they are connected with
an the activity referred to above.
