Current mining activities are strongly regulated by Member States under National Laws. In most countries, Water Acts and Water Laws include protection of waters from mining activities. Additional legislations and regulations are implemented for the protection of groundwater, e.g. decree on activities that affect the quality of groundwater in Hungary or the Groundwater Exploration Act in Sweden (Endl, and Berger, 2016). The legislative instruments on international and national level regulating the current mining sector should ensure that the objectives of the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) and Groundwater Directive (2006/118/EC) are achieved (WRc, 2012).
