Indicator Assessment chemical/x-pdb Ecological status or potential (WFD 003) - Assessment DRAFT created Apr 2013
More than half of the surface water bodies in Europe are reported to be in less than good ecological status or potential, and will need mitigation and/or restoration measures to meet the WFD objective.  River water bodies and transitional waters are reported to have worse ecological status or potential than water bodies in lakes and coastal waters.

Highlight More than half of EU surface waters below ‘good’ ecological status
Water pollution and physical modifications are still affecting the ecology of many of Europe’s lakes, rivers, transitional water bodies and coastal waters. These problems are likely to prevent the water bodies reaching ‘good’ status by 2015, a target set by the EU’s Water Framework Directive (WFD).
