French Water Agencies


Created by the 1964 water law, the 6 water agencies are public establishments of the State. They carry out a general interest mission to manage and preserve water resources and aquatic environments.

Placed under the supervision of the Ministry of Ecological Transition, the water agencies collect fees from all water users according to the "polluter pays" and "user pays" principles. Most of the amounts collected are reinvested in the form of financial aid to local authorities, economic players and farmers to finance actions to restore good water status.

They also help local authorities to develop decentralised cooperation actions with communities in developing countries.
