European Bathing Waters Report Published

 The European Environment Agency (EEA) in cooperation with the European Commission DG Environment European Environment Agency has published the annual report on bathing water (coast and inland) across all 27 EU Member States. The report, published in May 2012, gives the results of the 2011 bathing water season and so gives an indication of where quality is expected to be good in 2012. 92.1% of the bathing waters meet the minimum water quality standards set out in the Bathing Water Directive. See the European Environment Agency site for the report, and to download specific country reports or check bathing water quality on an interactive map (the data can be visualised in geospatial mapping programs such as Bing Maps and Google Earth maps)
