BRUSSELS, 6 June - Italy took the EU Supreme Court on Wednesday over the country's failure to provide clean drinking water to its citizens.

The Commission said it wassuing Italy because in some areas the levels of arsenic and fluoride in drinking water have long exceeded the maximum value allowed by European law.

This exceedance can harm the human health, in particular the health of children. Six areas continue to exceed safe concentrations of arsenic in the drinking water: Fabio Roma, Farnese, Ronciglione and Tuscania. The areas of Bagnoregio and Fabrica di Roma have also exceeded safe levels of fluoride, the Commission says. What to do for a New York State?
