Monitoring programme of surface and ground waters of Nestos river basin

​​​Application services of a monitoring programme of surface and ground waters of Nestos river basin

​Country: Greece

Region: Nestos River Basin, Prefectures of Kavala, Xanthi and Drama
Duration: April 2008 - November 2008
Client: Region of East Macedonia – Thrace/Water Department

 

Main characteristics:

  • Design and application of a monitoring programme of surface (rivers, lakes, transitional and coastal water bodies) and ground water systems pursuant to the principles of the Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC (sampling positions, parameters and monitoring frequency, monitoring protocols)
  • Classification of the ecological and chemical condition of the surface water systems and the chemical and quantitative condition of the underground water systems on the basis of the results of the monitoring programme
  • Longitudinal and transversal soundings of the surface with the use of appropriate methods in order to investigate the stratigraphy of the basin, the geometry of the aquifers of the region and the characteristics of the water bearing capacity (electric, magnetic etc)
  • Monitoring of protected regions

Important environmental issues:

  • Determination and analysis of anthropogenic pressures on the surface and ground water systems and the protected areas and assessment of their impacts
  • Determination of monitoring parameters (physical, chemical, biological and hydro-morphological qualitative data, priority and other substances) for each type of monitoring programme (supervision, operational and investigative monitoring for surface water systems and quantitative, supervision and operational monitoring for ground water systems) pursuant to Directive 2000/60/EC
  • Characterization – typology of the surface water systems and initial and further characterization of the ground water systems pursuant to the principles of Directive 2000/60/EC
  • Determination of the report conditions of surface water systems pursuant to the principles of Directive 2000/60/EC

Similar projects:

  • Development of an Integrated Water Monitoring Programme and development of the relevant data bases for the support of the implementation of the Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC (article 8) in Cyprus (2006-2007)
  • Assessment of the ecological quality of Cyprus flowing waters with biological diatom indices (phytobenthos) – Implementation of the Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC (2007-2008)
  • Assessment of the ecological quality of Cyprus flowing waters with biological indices of the quality of aquatic macrophytes in the implementation framework of the Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC (2007-2008)
  • Application of the monitoring plan of the habitat “Posidonia oceanica” at Cape Greco in Cyprus (2007-2008)
  • Management system for the waters, soils and ecosystems of Karla (2009-2010)
