                                               Project Description
This project looks at improving bathing water quality and providing robust and understandable information to
the public to optimise recreational opportunities in the four partner countries: Canary Islands, Portugal, France
and UK.


                                                   Main Aims
   To develop a common understanding for water quality assessment
   To ensure links between inland agricultural practice and its effect on bathing water quality
   To develop risk assessment management systems
   To improve the image of recreational bathing waters to maximise recreational value and contributions to
    economic activity
 To optimise environmental, economic and recreational value of existing and potential new sites under the
    Bathing Water Directive
                                                 Expected Results
Improved understanding of compliance with Bathing Water Directive
Improved water quality and a reduction in marine litter
A robust understanding of the effects of diffuse pollution on bathing water quality and reduction of that effect
A protocol for assessing the source of bacteria found in bathing waters
A protocol for risk assessment of bathing water quality
A sustainable planning approach to rural domestic sewage treatment
