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.

jalexson Hi!
My name is Johanna Alexson and I am currently an intern at SEI (Stockholm Environmental Institute) and am looking for data on phosphorus in surface water, from all the available rivers and lakes in Europe.
I found data from two interactive maps showing phosphorus, however, the data they refer to in these maps is no longer available:

And the data that is available to download today from Waterbase (https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/waterbase-water-quality#tab-european-data) does not include phosphorus.
So, I am wondering if it is possible to get the raw data that is in the interactive maps (phosphorus in lakes and rivers until 2012)? Maybe as an excel file if that is something you can provide?
Thank you so much for your time and have a great afternoon.
Kind regards,
Johanna Alexson
