Action C.18: Monitoring for emerging pollutants of potential concern
Concrete action

The objective of this action is to implement the monitoring framework for contaminants of emerging concern in a number of water categories (surface waters, ground water, rainwater runoff and new water) as developed under Action A.6 at a national river basin district scale.

The main expected results from this action are the analytical results on the presence/absence and concentrations of the identified contaminants of emerging concern in the four water categories.  Annual reports outlining the monitoring results per water category will be compiled over the course of the action implementation period. Moreover, this action, together with preparatory Action A.6, will result in the identification of potential contaminants of emerging concern and concentrations of such, which may be subject to further regulation depending on their ecotoxicity and potential health effects.
