The issue of water in the Lake Geneva region
After a general introduction on Lake Geneva itself, this background report describes the socio-economic and natural environment of the lake as well as its general "state of health". It then highlights specific topics such as waste water treatment and the water pollution caused by agriculture. The final chapter is dedicated to what the general public can and must do. Keeping the lake water clean and healthy is possible only through the joint management of the cross-border waterways - both on the surface and underground - which flow into the lake. Besides international co-operation, there also needs to be political and economic co-operation and co-operation between industry and agriculture, between the public sectors and private individuals if the problems of pollution are to be resolved at source. Finally, an appeal is made to the public to address the water issue and help preserve this shared resource. Additional relevant material on the issue can be found in other language versions of this page.

Toxic glacier melts
A new study has confirmed that melting glaciers release chemical substances that have long been banned and are not longer produced by industry. Researchers from Swiss education institutes took frozen sediment core samples from the Oberaar reservoir in the Grimsel area in Switzerland and used the layers to reconstruct the history of the lake back to when it was first established in 1953.
