That was recently discovered by scientists at the universities of Texas and Chile. They have collaborated on research into the cleanliness of water resources in the world.

Denmark, as one of the first countries of the world, established a ministry of the environment in its parliament in 1971.

In the sixties of the 20th century, the pollution of the country's water resources and the harbor near the capital city of Copenhagen reached alarming values ​​of such a scale that the government acted quickly.

40 years have passed since then and Denmark has become a country which, in the field of waterwaste management and sustainability, is transfering its knowledge to other countries around the world.

and in the restaurant you get a glass of tap water after ordering the mineral water.

In Denmark the rules for industrial wastewater treatment are strictly observed and the government is also largely involved in the treatment of wastewater.

4. Singapore

Unlike neighboring countries, the water resource in Singapore has maintained a high standard for a long time. "The city of Singapore has one of the world's highest quality drinking water sources," the Singapore National Water Agency reported on its website.

The only downside is that it slowly dries.

Clean water SingaporeSingapore residents usually boil water before drinking, but not because of bacteria,
they simply believe that the boiled water tastes better.

It is because of an average daily consumption of the Singaporeans. One person spends an average of 150 liters of water a day, equivalent to two bathtubs filled to the edge.

5. Sweden

Clean water and 100% accessibility for all residents – that is what is Austria famous for. The country even concluded the so-called Austrian Water Pact, which undertakes to monitor the quality of groundwater and undergroundwater, the impact of human activity on these flows and how to prevent deterioration of the aquatic ecosystem in the country.

Icelanders are so proud of their water that they recommend it to the tourists to drink it straight from the lake. The water flows are particularly clear due to the layers of volcanic sediment through which the water pours to the surface perfectly filtered.

It does not require additional chemical treatments that are common in other countries of the world.

8. Germany

German water is one of the safest and most inspected food products in the country. It is so good that it tastes like a mineral.

For incomprehensible reasons, however, water consumption has decreased in recent decades. And that's at the expense of bottled water from supermarkets.

Water consumption is estimated to have dropped from 145 liters in 1990 to 121 liters per inhabitant per day in 2010.

clean water GermanyLevel of wastewater treatment is very high in various regions of Germany
and is also highly supported by the government.

9. Greenland

One of the cleanest sources of drinking water on our planet is located in Greenland. Specifically, it comes from a never melting snow cover that covers 80% of the entire area of the largest island on Earth.

The paradox is that the inhabitants of Greenland use mainly processed water from local lakes and rivers.

Wastewater is regulated very strictly. For its discharge to the sea or other watercourse, enterprises must have a special permit issued by the government.

In particular, this permit regulates the amount of waste discharged and its composition, with wastewater being discharged only under strict time constraints.

10. Switzerland

The world's newest UNESCO survey has ranked Switzerland in 16th place in the quality of water management and protection of water resources from industrial pollution. Did you know that, for example, since 1986, the use of phosphates has been totally forbidden in the country?

Most recently, however, the Swiss must deal with waste from the production of pharmaceuticals, which is one of the main industrial pillars of the country.

Strict regulations, however, have brought their fruit to the Swiss for the last 50 years. Water is safe to drink directly from the strand without any concerns about your own health.
