It replaced older pieces of European water legislation, such as Directives 76/160/EEC (EEC, 1976a) (quality of bathing water), 76/464/EEC (EEC, 1976b) (water pollution by discharges of certain dangerous substances), 80/68/EEC (EEC, 1980) (groundwater protection against dangerous substances), 91/676/EEC (EEC, 1991a) (nitrates directive), and 91/271/EEC (EEC, 1991b) (urban wastewater treatment). At the time, it reflected the changing sociopolitical and economic context of the 1990s: (1) the increasing internationalization and complexity of water resource management; (2) the rising number of actors and institutions involved; (3) the newly vested economic interests in water supply; and (4) the growing concern and sensitivity toward environmental protection (Kaika, 2003).

In response, economists have designed specialized transfers to limit the extent and duration of third-party impairment. , 2000).

This was the root cause of why Idaho potato growers continued irrigating in a poor market year rather than lease their water rights to hydroelectric power generators (Unnamed, 2001).
