For surface waters, good chemical status means that no concentrations of priority substances exceed the relevant EQS established in the Environmental Quality Standards Directive 2008/105/EC (as amended by the Priority Substances Directive 2013/39/EU). EQS aim to protect the most sensitive species from direct toxicity, including predators and humans. The WFD requires Member States to designate separate groundwater bodies and ensure that each one achieves 'good chemical and quantitative status'. To meet the aim of good chemical status, hazardous substances should be prevented from entering groundwater, and the entry of all other pollutants (e.g. nitrates) should be limited. Good quantitative status can be achieved by ensuring that the available groundwater resource is not reduced by the long-term annual average rate of abstraction The Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC (WFD) Classification Status Cycle 2 dataset contains classification status for water bodies in England reported from 2013 onwards.

2. The Ecological Status and Ecological Potential in the Water Framework Directive 2.1 For surface waters the overall aim of the WFD is for Member States to achieve good ecological status and good surface water chemical status in all bodies of surface water by 2015. Some water bodies may not achieve this objective for different reasons water bodies, good ecological potential) and good surface water chemical status Your WFD risk assessment needs to demonstrate with a high level of confidence that your activity supports these objectives. In other words, it needs to demonstrate that there is a low risk that the activity will cause deterioration i section 3.5 Chemical status of groundwater and exemptions of the WFD 2016 reporting guidance. Caution is advised when comparing Member States and when comparing the first and second RBMPs, as the results are affected by the methods Member States have used to collect data an
The Water Framework Directive (WFD) methodology, proposed by the Ministry of Environment and Energy of Greece (WFD-MEEG), and the Canadian Council of Ministers of Environment Water Quality Index (CCME-WQI) are comparatively applied to evaluate the chemical status of a major transboundary river Classification. The WFD classification scheme for water quality includes five status classes: high, good, moderate, poor and bad. 'High status' is defined as the biological, chemical and morphological conditions associated with no or very low human pressure Chemical status of surface waters: • Determined by the concentrations of the priority substances (45) plus 8 other pollutants of chemical status in the WFD context, bearing in mind their possible application under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
. In a WFD assessment you must show if your activity will: a chemical change like low dissolved oxygen across part or all of the estuary In addition, the WFD requires Member States to identify specific pollutants in the River Basins and to include them in the monitoring programmes. Monitoring of both WFD priority substances and other pollutants for the purpose of determination of the chemical and ecological status shall be performed according to Article 8 and Annex V of the WFD Figures released by the Environment Agency show for the first time that no river has achieved good chemical status, suggesting pollution from sewage discharge, chemicals and agriculture are having. WFD Objectives. In addition to chemical water quality targets, ecological objectives have been set for each water body. A key aim of the WFD is for all water bodies to achieve 'good ecological and chemical status'. The original target for achieving good status was 2015, but further deadlines are set for 2021 and 2027

To define good chemical status, environmental quality standards have been established for 33 new and eight previously regulated chemical pollutants of high concern across the EU. The WFD is backed up by other EU legislation such as the REACH regulation on chemicals and the Industrial Emissions Directive for industrial.
Regarding water quality, the implementation process of the WFD has forced Spanish authorities to collect a vast amount of data to characterize the ecological and chemical status of water bodies The first Programme of Measures to achieve good status (or potential) had to be in place by 2012 with the intention of achieving the objectives by 2015. Progress with WFD implementation is reviewed on a six-yearly basis and there are two further WFD planning cycles - up to 2021 and 2027 WFD with possible updates along the 6 years river basin management cycle of the directive. Since there is an overlap between WFD and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (Directive 2008/56/EC) as regards chemical pollutants in territorial waters a link between monitoring activities for both directives has to be established This publication lists priority substances and certain other polluting chemicals as set out in the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Environmental Quality Standards Directive (EQSD).Use this.
Chemical status is based on environmental quality standards for annual average and maximum allowable concentrations of certain Priority Substances. Public Participation A key part of the Water Framework Directive is Article 14, which requires all member states to engage with the people who live, work and play in a catchment The key objective of the WFD is to achieve good status for all water bodies by 2015. This comprises the objectives of good ecological and chemical status for surface waters and good quantitative and chemical status for groundwater. The main instrument for the implementation of the WFD is the RBMP and the accompanying Programme of Measures (PoM)
The Water Framework Directive (WFD) is European Union legislation under which Great Britain is obliged to meet targets for the ecological and chemical status of waterbodies over the course of the next 15 years. Any works which could affect the hydro-morphology, ecology or water quality of any classified waterbody requires an assessment under the WFD to demonstrate how any adverse impacts will. Current prioritisation procedures under the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) do not account for risks from chemical mixtures. SOLUTIONS proposes a multiple-lines-of-evidence approach to tackle the problem effectively. The approach merges all available evidence from co-exposure modelling, chemical monitoring, effect-based monitoring, and ecological monitoring Apparently, if HI EQS would relate to impact magnitudes, the current WFD-chemical status classification (Fig. 1) hides a large variability in the magnitude of expected impacts from mixture exposures
Despite this ambition, the progress in achieving good ecological and chemical status according to the WFD appears to be limited. Good chemical status has not been achieved in most European river basins (in Germany, Sweden and some others there is 100% failure) due to ubiquitously occurring priority substances .The number of water bodies classified as achieving good chemical status has not.

Communication on the chemical and quantitative status of groundwater is also problematic as the overall status does not always reflect the progress made in improving chemical status.'

All application (apart from Band 1 low risk activity applications) must be accompanied by a WFD assessment. Guidance on how to carry out a WFD assessment can be found on the Gov.uk website good status by 2015 has been missed by a long shot. Currently, only about 40% of Europe's surface waters are estimated to be in good ecological and only 38% in good chemical status7. Groundwaters generally have better status (74 % in good chemical status; 89 % in good quantitative status), although problems in som groundwater bodies achieved good chemical status and 89% good quantitative status. Unlike groundwater, the WFD has unfortunately not achieved such good result
Data on phytoplankton, macrophytes, benthic invertebrates and fish from more than 2000 lakes in 22 European countries were used to develop and test metrics for assessing the ecological status of European lakes as required by the Water Framework Directive.

Abstract. It is now more than ten years ago that the Water Framework Directive (WFD) was adopted by the European Parliament. The main objectives of the WFD are (i) to achieve good ecological and chemical status for inland surface waters, transitional waters and coastal waters in EU Member States, (ii) to assess the ecological and chemical status of these water bodies by means of monitoring.
