Lakes and watercourses

The programme will help to provide an overall picture of water status and chemical-physical impact on lakes and watercourses. The findings should provide a basis for monitoring achievement of the Flourishing Lakes and Streams environmental objective and other objectives related to water quality. Another current aim is to support various public agencies in their work under the EC Water Framework Directive and on other international water quality commitments.
