Description
This dataset gives information on water quality measurements of surface water, suspended solids, sediments and aquatic animals for more than 170 locations in coastal waters, canals and lakes. This dataset contains measurements of various types of nutrients. more

Nutrients are a natural part of the aquatic environment. Elevated concentrations are often found and are mainly due to human intervention and activities. Standards for nutrients are established at national level: target values and the Maximum Permissible Concentration (MPC), as in the fourth Memorandum for water. Less intensive monitoring can be accepted when the standard is being met for a particular nutrient . On the other hand it also happens that a new substance should be added to the list. Elevated concentrations of nutrients in the aquatic environment today are mainly attributable to intensive agriculture (emission from manure) and discharge of wastewater (sewage, industrial). However since the early nineties phosphate concentrations have decreased substantially as a result of less use of phosphate detergents. Monitoring of nutrients should yield a reliable picture of the magnitude of emissions of problematic substances and should allow to estimate the effect of these on the water quality.
