Data Waterbase - Groundwater
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
Located in Data and maps Datasets
Indicator Assessment Oxygen consuming substances in rivers (CSI 019) - Assessment DRAFT created Sep 2014
Concentrations of BOD and total ammonium have decreased in European rivers in the period 1992 to 2012 (Fig. 1), mainly due to general improvement in waste water treatment.

Figure Phosphorus concentrations in rivers (orthophosphate) between 1992 and 2009 in different sea regions of Europe
The sea region data series are calculated as the average of annual mean data from river monitoring stations in each sea region. The data thus represents rivers or river basins draining into that particular sea. Only complete series after inter/extrapolation are included (see indicator specification). The number of river monitoring stations per region is given in parentheses.

Figure Phosphorus concentrations in lakes (total phosphorus) between 1992 and 2009 in different geographical regions of Europe.
The data series per region are calculated as the average of the annual mean for lake monitoring stations in the region. Only complete series after inter/extrapolation are included (see indicator specification). There were no stations with complete series after inter/extrapolation in the South and Southeast regions. The number of lake monitoring stations included per geographical region is given in parentheses

Figure BOD5 concentrations in rivers between 1992 and 2009 draining to different sea regions of Europe
Geographical coverage: Baltic Sea, Black Sea, Celtic Seas, Bay of Biscay, Iberian Cost, Greater North Sea, Mediterranean Sea.

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.

Figure BOD5 concentrations in rivers between 1992 and 2011 draining to different sea regions of Europe
The sea region data series are calculated as the average of annual mean data from river monitoring stations in each sea region. The data thus represents rivers or river basins draining into that particular sea. Only complete series after inter/extrapolation are included (see indicator specification). The number of river monitoring stations included per sea region is given in parentheses. There were no stations with consistent data series on BOD7 in rivers draining to the Arctic Ocean. BOD7 data has been recalculated into BOD5 data.

Indicator Assessment Bathing water quality (CSI 022) - Assessment published Dec 2010
The quality of water at designated bathing beaches in Europe (coastal and inland) has improved significantly since 1992. Compliance with mandatory values in EU coastal bathing waters increased from 82.3 % in 1992 to 95.6 % in 2009. Compliance with guide values likewise rose from 71.1 % to 89 %. In 1992, 37.4 % of EU inland bathing areas complied with mandatory values compared to 89.4 % in 2009. Similarly, the rate of compliance with guide values moved from 22 % in 1992 to 70.7 % in 2009.
