ABSTRACT
The human right of access to public water supply and sanitation (WSS) has been recently (2010) recognized and stated by the United Nations General Assembly. The human right to water and sanitation entitles everyone to water and sanitation services which are available, accessible, affordable, acceptable and seif. Therefore, in Romania, the challenge to reduce the urban/rural disparities in terms of ensuring people’s right of access to public WSS systems adds another reason for the need to develop the water infrastructure, besides that of compliance with the EU water Directives.
