Indicator Assessment Nutrients in freshwater (CSI 020/WAT 003) - Assessment published Feb 2015
Since 2005, average nitrate concentrations in European groundwater have declined and in 2011, the mean concentration had almost returned to the 1992 level. The average nitrate concentration in European rivers declined by 0.03 milligrams per liter of nitrogen (mg N/l) (0.8%) per year over the period 1992 to 2012. The decline in nitrate concentration reflects the effect of measures to reduce agricultural inputs of nitrate, as well as improvements in wastewater treatment. Average orthophosphate concentration in European rivers has decreased markedly over the last two decades (0.003 milligrams per liter of phosphorous (mg P/l) or 2.1% per year). Also, average lake phosphorus concentration decreased over the period 1992-2012 (0.0004 mg P/l, or 0.8% per year). The decrease in phosphorus concentration reflects both improvements in wastewater treatment and the reduction of phosphorus in detergents.

GIS Map Application Water quality monitoring station density
The map shows the density of water quality monitoring stations, reported by EEA member countries via WISE SoE reporting. The density of river monitoring stations is represented per national River Basin District (RBD). Note that the set of monitoring stations used by Member States to assess the chemical and ecological status of river water bodies under the Water Framework Directive may not be the same set of stations used for the annual WISE SoE water quality reporting. Historical data since 1992 can be displayed using the time slider.

Figure Water Used for Irrigation in Europe per NUTS2 Regions (m3/ha)
The map shows Water Used for Irrigation in (m3/ha) among different countries in Europe at NUTS2 level. Irrigation water for kitchen gardens and crops under glass is not included. There is uncertainty if combined use of irrigation drainage system is quantified and included where applied.
