Water - Agriculture - Diffuse pollution

Since 2002, IOWater has built its skills in agronomy and hydrology to participate in programs for controlling diffuse agricultural pollution in aquatic environments.
With the support of the Ministries of Ecology and Agriculture and ONEMA, IOWater analyzed water quality data, eutrophication data and agricultural data.
In 2015, IOWater worked on:
  •  The preparation of the quadrennial report on the Nitrates Directive for the European Commission, regarding the 2014-2015 measurement campaign,
  •  The updating of the Environmental Assessment of the National Nitrates Action Plan,
  •  The establishment of a platform for data on the pressures (including agricultural) exerted on the environments.
