Due to be formally launched next month, the Copenhagen plan seeks to source more water from within the city's boundaries to lessen "imports" of potentially pesticide-contaminated water from surrounding agricultural areas. It proposes DKr40m (euros 5.4m) spending over four years to deal with water contamination hot spots around leather treatment and dry-cleaning operations. And it pledges research into cutting the estimated 20m cubic metres per year thought to leak annually from drinking water supply pipes.
