Work Item
Indicator codes: CSI 020 , WAT 003

All countries should have completed their delineation of groundwater bodies according to WFD in March 2005. As a consequence it should be easier to get more information on groundwater bodies. Especially information on GIS data should be available. Existing data on groundwater bodies will have to be evaluated and updated as the delineation of GW-bodies is likely to be changed due to WFD requirements. Countries will also be designing and/or modifying their monitoring programmes for rivers, lakes and groundwater bodies over the coming years as a requirement of the WFD. This should increase the extent of information potentially available to the EEA through the EWN process.
