Figure Triazine pesticides found in groundwater on at least one sampling occasion between 2003 and 2007, at concentrations above 0.1 μg/l
This map shows - for those countries that have reported data to the EEA – which of the triazine group of pesticides have been found in recent years in groundwater, on at least one sampling occasion, at a concentration greater than 0.1 µg/L, the standard under both the Groundwater and Drinking Water Directives. The data does not reflect the frequency with which the threshold has been exceeded.

Highlight chemical/x-pdb Water quality and wastewater treatment — WISE interactive maps updated
A series of maps on water quality, updated with the latest information reported by countries, has been published by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The maps display water quality parameters in various receiving waters across Europe, alongside information on urban wastewater treatment and receiving areas sensitive to eutrophication.

Publication Water resources: quantity and flows - SOER 2010 thematic assessment
Europe's freshwaters are affected by water scarcity, droughts, floods and physical modifications. Many water bodies are at risk of failing to meet the aim of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) to achieve good status by 2015. Future policies should encourage demand management through actions such as increasing water efficiency. In addition, water management will benefit from applying an ecosystems perspective, using floodplains and groundwater aquifers for storing water, and making room (space) for rivers.

Data WISE Groundwater
A GWB is defined in WFD Art. 2 as a distinct volume of groundwater within an aquifer or aquifers, whereas an aquifer is defined as a geological layer with significant groundwater flow. This definition of a GWB allows a wide scope of interpretations. The submission of GWB data to the Commission by the EU Member States was accomplished via the Reportnet platform, as a part of the dataflow for WFD. Art. 13 reporting. GWB data includes spatial data as GIS polygons and GWB characteristics in an XML schema. GWBs are registered to so-called horizons, which represent distinct vertical layers of groundwater resources.
