Name Eutrophication parameters in surface water
Definition Eutrophication parameters measured in each surface water monitoring station. The eutrophication parameters used for rivers, lakes/reservoirs and TCM waters can be different.
Methodology for obtaining data Different criteria to evaluate the eutrophication status exist in the various EU-Member States. Member States are requested to report on methodology and on those eutrophication parameters which were used to do the assessment. Reporting has to be done separately for rivers, lakes, transitional, coastal and marine waters.
This table should be used for all surface water monitoring stations and all measured parameters and should be repeated for each reported year. Discrimination between the surface water entities (river, lake, etc.) can be made by indicating the "Station type", discrimination between the parameters by entering the "Name of parameter". The combination of the elements CountryCode, NationalStationCode and StationType must create a unique record in the table. No duplicate records should exist with this combination.
Please consider the following when compiling your data delivery:
1. Submit data on trophic state and/or eutrophication parameters
2. Submit data for each sample site (no aggregation of stations).
Filling out the tables:
All elements are required to be filled out unless “optional” or "voluntary" has been indicated or unless the element is not applicable (e.g. if a monitoring station is not used for reporting for WFD, the element EU_CD cannot be filled out.)
If “mandatory” or "required" is indicated, the element shall always be filled in. and after submitting the table in Reportnet, the QA in Reportnet will give an error message if the content of the cell will be empty.
