Name Nutrients and Organic Matter Emission Discharges from Point Sources
Definition Annual emission of nutrients and organic matter from point (discharges) to rivers and lakes are requested from EEA Member Countries on a three year basis. However, if major changes have occurred, annual reporting is requested.
Methodology for obtaining data Annual nutrient and organic matter emissions from point sources to rivers and lakes are requested. Direct discharges to coastal water are part of SoE Reporting: Transitional, Coastal and Marine Waters.

Data should be aggregated at the national RBD level. A phased approach to reporting is expected, with the level of spatial detail increasing progressively over time. Consequently, it is intended that RBD scale data provided in the first years of reporting be replaced as RB (sub-unit), or waterbody information becomes available and should be supplied by electronic means at this time. Nutrient and organic matter emissions should be split by agglomerations and divided according to the population equivalent (p.e.). Point sources from collected but untreated agglomerations are also requested. Data from agglomerations p.e. < 2000 are requested only if they are significant - see also scattered dwelling under diffuse pollution.

We would like to encourage all countries to provide annual emissions data for nutrients and organic matter from point discharges, for as long a time series as possible. If the data was provided by WFD, UWWTD, E-PRTR or SoE Transitional, Coastal and Marine Waters (Riverine load or Direct Discharges) reporting, please flag using value -1, -2, -3 or -5 respectively.
If the value of emissions is not known or not available, enter -8 into the Emission field. In case emissions are not relevant or not significant, enter -9. Please do not use zero but suggested codes, if relevant.
