Figure

The figures show the percentage of monitoring sites with exceedance of effect thresholds or quality standard, set by European or national regulatory standards, with a country weighting factor to reduce the impact of uneven data reporting. For surface waters, European environmental quality standards and (in absence of those) national regulatory standards were used, reflecting the lowest ecotoxicologically-based effect threshold. For groundwater, the Groundwater Directive quality standard of 0.1µg/l was used to identify exceedance.
