European Bathing Water Quality in 2017 (EEA)
Europe has a great diversity of beautiful beaches and bathing areas, and each year millions of Europeans spend their weekends at their local beach or their holidays cooling off by the water. As this year’s bathing season approaches, many citizens begin to take a keen interest in the quality of bathing waters. The European Union’s efforts to ensure clean and healthy bathing water began forty years ago with the first Bathing Water Directive. Today Europe’s bathing waters are much cleaner than forty years ago when large quantities of untreated or partially treated municipal and industrial waste water were discharged into water.
