Abstract

At the beginning of April 2011, local water companies from the counties of Arad in Romania and Békés in Hungary initiated the demarches for the first project of transboundary supply of groundwater from the Romanian part of the Mureş Alluvial Fan Aquifer System to consumers in Hungary. An idea which came about at the same time that the International Law Commission’s Draft Articles on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers were being adopted, will be probably put into practice shortly after the United Nations General Assembly would have analyzed whether to transform the Draft Articles into a multilateral treaty. Until then, many legal questions regarding this project must be answered, some of them national, others international. This article tries to answer some of these problems, with the help of the International Law Commission’s Draft Articles on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers and the bilateral agreements concluded between Romania and Hungary.
