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.

European data


Additional information

Data are sourced from Eionet-Water and in the case of Denmark supplemented by information from the Danish national groundwater monitoring program (1989-2007) and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland. Data from Switzerland is provided but for no substance has a concentration greater than 0.1 µg/L been recorded.
