According to the Water assessment report from 2018, where EEA states the main significant pressures on water, I can not understand the percentages of the sources. Should it be 100% total or I really can not cope with it?!

Dear M. 'Pecologist',

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

We believe that you are referring to the EEA report 'European waters - Assessment of status and pressures 2018' and in particular to the figure 2.8 illustrating the proportion (%) of water bodies affected by main pressures. A water body may be affected by more than one pressure (e.g. diffuse pollution and hydromorphology) and therefore the sum of percentages may be higher than 100 %.

We hope that this clarifies the question.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service

Yes, that is the report. Ok, understood. Thank you.
