Dear, I'm looking for information about ways of measurement of surface water quality in each european country. I found a publications from 1996 but I think that something could change.
I would like to know if there are countries which collect data on quality in the same place as flow etc. and if they are collected automatically or not.
Please help ;) Kind regards! Marta (Poland)

Dear Ms. Marta Barszczewska,

Thank you for your interest in the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The EEA Waterbase - Water Quality available at https://www.eea.europa.eu/d[…]uality-2#tab-european-data, contains data from EEA member countries on water quality in rivers, lakes and groundwater from 1960 to 2018 (the majority of data are from 1992 to 2017). The EEA is using this information in the two water quality indicators that are available below the database.

The EEA WISE-SoE - Water Quantity, available at https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/waterbase-water-quantity-10, collects observation on river flows but unfortunately, the EEA has not undertaken a combination of the monitoring sites on water quality and water quantity (river flows).

We hope that this information will be useful for you.

With kind regards,
The EEA Enquiry Service
