Figure C source code Phosphorus emission intensity of domestic sector in period 1990, 2000-2009 in 23 European countries (EU20 + Switzerland, Norway and Turkey)
The chart displays changes in phosphorus emission intensity of domestic sector in 1990, 2000 and 2009. Phosphorus emission intensity is expressed as kilogram of phosphorus discharged in water per inhabitant and year. Two sets of values are displayed for emission intensity for 2009. (1) Values calculated on the basis of default population equivalents and treatment efficiencies and (2) values calculated as sum of emission load reported voluntarily under the UWWTD and calculated load generated by population not connected to waste water treatment.

Figure Phosphorus concentrations in rivers (orthophosphate) between 1992 and 2009 in different sea regions of Europe
The sea region data series are calculated as the average of annual mean data from river monitoring stations in each sea region. The data thus represents rivers or river basins draining into that particular sea. Only complete series after inter/extrapolation are included (see indicator specification). The number of river monitoring stations per region is given in parentheses.

Figure Phosphorus concentrations in lakes (total phosphorus) between 1992 and 2009 in different geographical regions of Europe.
The data series per region are calculated as the average of the annual mean for lake monitoring stations in the region. Only complete series after inter/extrapolation are included (see indicator specification). There were no stations with complete series after inter/extrapolation in the South and Southeast regions. The number of lake monitoring stations included per geographical region is given in parentheses

Indicator Assessment Nutrients in freshwater (CSI 020) - Assessment DRAFT created Apr 2012
•    Average nitrate concentrations in European groundwaters increased from 1992 to 1998, but have declined again since 2004. •    The average nitrate concentration in European rivers decreased by approximately 13% between 1992 and 2009 (from 2.5 to 2.1 mg/l N), reflecting the effect of measures to reduce agricultural inputs of nitrate. •    Average orthophosphate concentrations in European rivers have decreased markedly over the last two decades, being halved between 1992 and 2009 (52% decrease). Also average lake phosphorus concentration decreased over the period 1992-2009 (by 22%), the major part of the decrease occurring in the first half of the period. The decrease in phosphorus concentrations reflects both improvement in wastewater treatment and reduction in phosphorus in detergents. •    Overall, reductions in the levels of freshwater nutrients over the last two decades primarily reflect improvements in wastewater treatment. Emissions from agriculture continue to be a significant source.
