Already facing millions of euros of fines – growing daily – for failure to close landfills to meet European Union orders, Greece now has been whacked with a 13 million euro penalty for violations of wastewater treatment laws.

The European Court of Justice imposed the fine against Greece for violation of European regulations, noting that the country has failed to enforce a six-year-old ruling ordering it to “adequately treat and dispose of urban wastewater.”

The fine will also grow by 47,462 euros for every day – more than 17.3 million a year – that the ruling is not enforced, according to the court decision.

The violations relate to the wastewater disposal system in parts of Attica, Thessaloniki, Tripoli, Edessa, Nafpaktos and Rafina as well as sections of several islands including Corfu, Crete, Poros and Zakynthos
