Indicator Assessment Nutrients in freshwater (CSI 020) - Assessment DRAFT created Sep 2014
Average nitrate concentrations in European groundwater increased from 1992 to 1998, but have declined again since 2005. The average nitrate concentration in European rivers declined by 0.03 mg N/l (0.8%) per year over the period 1992 to 2012. The decline in nitrate concentrations reflects the effect of measures to reduce agricultural inputs of nitrate as well as improvement in wastewater treatment. Average orthophosphate concentration in European rivers has decreased markedly over the last two decades (0.003 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 concentrations reflects both improvement in wastewater treatment and reduction in phosphorus in detergents.

Data Waterbase - Lakes
Waterbase is the generic name given to the EEA's databases on the status and quality of Europe's rivers, lakes, groundwater bodies and transitional, coastal and marine waters, and on the quantity of Europe's water resources

Data File QA documentation
Quality control documentation briefly presents ETC/ICM and EEA activities focused on quality of Waterbase-Lakes dataset and results of these activities. In addition warning is given on the use of certain records for analytical purposes.

Press Release Troff document Water quality excellent at most of Europe's bathing sites
The water at Europe's beaches, rivers and lakes was generally of high quality in 2013, with 95 % of these sites meeting minimum requirements. Coastal sites performed slightly better than inland bathing waters, the data shows.
