How can I access the data set about the parameters measured in bathing water?

Hello,
According to the bathing water directive, local authorities collect water samples at officially identified bathing sites throughout the bathing season. The samples are then analysed for two types of bacteria, which indicate pollution from sewage or livestock. The assessment of bathing water quality under the Bathing Water Directive makes use of the values of two microbiological parameters: intestinal enterococci and Escherichia coli. All officially identified
bathing waters must be sampled in accordance with monitoring requirements set out in the Bathing Water Directive. These include sampling bathing water on at least a monthly basis during the bathing season, with a minimum of four samples per season, and the compilation of a 4-year dataset for the assessment of bathing water quality.
Bathing water sites are then accordingly classified in one of the bathing-water quality classes (excellent, good, sufficient or poor). More information regarding bathing water legislation, monitoring and management provisions can be found in the 2016 EEA report 'European bathing water quality in 2015' (chapters 1 and 2) (9) and on the European Commission website (10) dedicated to bathing water.

(https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/european-bathing-water-quality-2015).
(10) http://ec.europa.eu/[…]/index_en.html.

EEA publish the bathing water quality classification see https://www.eea.europa.eu/d[…]-status-of-bathing-water-10 and on the map viewer http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/state-of-bathing-waters. However, EEA does not publish data on individual sampling dates and observation of the two microbiological indicators.
EEA has a test version of viewer of the individual sites and the reported observations – this dashboard require that the bathingwaterId that can be taken either from the map viewer or the Excel sheet.
