Monitoring of transitional and coastal waters according to the EU Water Framework Directive

Investor: Croatian Waters

The EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60 / EC) is the most important EU legal document in the field of water management. The directive entered into force on 22 December 2000, thus establishing a new framework for the management, protection and improvement of the quality of water resources, including underground, surface water, transitional and coastal waters throughout the European Community. In an effort to harmonize compliance with European regulations in the area of ​​protection, monitoring and management of water areas, the implementation of the Water Framework Directive has started in the Republic of Croatia a few years ago. According to the requirements of the Directive, the monitoring of the chemical and ecological status of water bodies in the area of ​​transitional and coastal waters of the Adriatic basin is carried out.
The main task of the project is to develop a proposal for a plan and program for monitoring transitional and coastal waters, and upon accepting the proposal of the program, start with implementation of monitoring of transitional and coastal waters.
