Investigation of Bathing Waters Classification Approaches

Price: £10  

Two complementary approaches for classifying bathing water as part of a revised Bathing Water Directive were trialled in 1999 in the UK, France and the Netherlands. The report analysed the findings of the USEPA/ WHO and French Vulnerability Profile approaches leading to a revised bathing water monitoring and assessment protocol. The revised protocol incorporated microbiological water quality monitoring and analysis, a beach characterisation (sanitary survey) and beach management options. The protocol will be further tested during the summer of 2000 throughout the European Union.
