ecsliuhm Dear EEA team:
When I tried to download hourly Pm2.5 series of Brussel from
http://discomap.eea.europa.eu/map/fme/AirQualityExport.htm, the request URL generated the following request http://fme.discomap.eea.eur[…]utput=TEXT&UpdateDate=.
However, after I clicked download, I did not receive any file list.

Could you please help me with this?

many thanks

DanteMaschio doubts about the reported data on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD)


I am working on a database based on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) data reported by the EU Member States. Here there are some doubts I can not solve with the information available on the EEA website.

General questions:
- Can we understand Individual Appropriate System (IAS) as an on-site treatment?
- According to the descriptions of the updated tables on the web now the number of real inhabitants is reported in the agglomeration table. However these data are not up to date. It will be available?

In relation to some tables:
1. T_UWWTPs:
(uwwloadentering) Is there a possibility to have the influence flow in m3 /d?
(uwwstate) How can I understand the inactive and temporarily inactive state for each uwwtps point?
(uwwdateclosing and uwwendlife) Could I understand that records prior to the current date are points that are no working now?
(uwwotherteatment) Which is the difference between Tertiary treatment (UV, Cl, O3,…) and Other – more stringent treatment?
(uwwperformance) How can I understand the Not Relevant registers?

2. T_agglomerations
(agglstate) How can I understand the inactive or temporarily inactive state for each agglomeration?
(aggendlife) What it meant that an agglomeration has reached its end of life?

3. T_UWWTPAgglom
When it is an imperative to report the relationship UWWTPs:Agglomeration?

4. T_UWWdischargepoints
(dcpstate) How can I understand the inactive and temporarily inactive state of a discharge point?

5. T_UWWemissionload:
Why there is so little information about the polluting charges (BOD, COD, TSS) that come in and out of UWWTPs?

I would also be useful if you can send me the Spanish contact who report and work on the data related to this directive.

aarn_kfflr Dear EEA,

actually I research about the greenhouse gas emissions from transport and especially the emissiones from the railway. I found the datas under the following link:

In Figure 3 "Share of transport greenhouse gas emissions" has the railway a part of 0.5 percent of the pie chart. Is it a "well-to-wheel" viewpoint (from crude oil to traction power to wheel) or a "tank-to-wheel" viewpoint (only the emissions from the diesel locomotiv)?

Thanks for your answer.

Best regards from Berlin

A. Kaffler

madalina_isac Hi, guys!
I am living in a residential neighbourhood assigned to a commune just outside Bucharest, Romania. For the past 2+ months, we have been invaded by a strong chemical smell coming from the small lake that's at the border of our neighbourhood.
Ever since it started to smell, it grew stronger and stronger and the air has become unbreathable, it even enters the house with the doors and windows closed. although the smell persists throughout the day pretty subtly, it reaches alarming levels in the morning and in the evening.

People in the community have been contacting the Local Environmental Agency (the one for Ilfov county), the National Environmental Agency, we have written numerous claims and called the local authorities, and even messaged the media, but all we got from the environment agency for the past few weeks is that an investigation is in process.

This is very serious because the smell is so chemical and stingy that you feel that your nose is burning on the inside. I personally feel a sensation of vomiting if I do not cover my nose and I am not a sensitive person.

We know corruption is a big problem in our country and we are now afraid that whoever causes this massive air pollution is trying to hide it and stall the investigation. I cannot imagine otherwise as an inspector declared on television a while ago that the smell is not related to common to residual waters discharge in case they are happening.

Who else could we contact to in order to hurry the investigation and to make sure the source of this pollution is found and remove? What else can we do? Do you guys have any ideas?
We cannot live like this anymore, we cannot even open the windows in the morning and we are getting extremely worried.
Thank you.
