Discharge Points

This facility provides free access to GIS data on European discharge points. View the discharge points data on an interactive map of Europe and search discharge points sites and locations. Alternatively, download Esri compatible GIS files (Geodatabase or Shapefile). Datasets are also available via OGC compliant web feature service (WFS) or web map services (WMS). The metadata featured here can be downloaded as XML.

EMODnet Human Activities, Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive, Discharge points or collecting systems


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The geodatabase on coastal discharge points from Urban Waste Water Treatment Plant (UWWTP) was created in 2019 by AZTI for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is based on the dataset "Waterbase-UWWTD" (Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive - reported data) provided by the European Topic Centre on Inland, Coastal and Marine waters, and made available at https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/waterbase-uwwtd-urban-waste-water-treatment-directive-5. The dataset presents the available information (localisation of discharge, link to specific treatment plant, type of receiving area into which the effluent/wastewater is discharged, related waterbody/river basin) on individual points of dischege from treatment plants or collecting systems located in coastal NUTS3 regions, based on data selected from the reporting of Member States as part of the UWWTD implementation. It is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The geographic coverage is: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom. The description of all attribute fields of UWWTP is given in the Waterbase-UWWTD (https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/waterbase-uwwtd-urban-waste-water-treatment-directive-5/waterbase-uwwtd).

Lineage
Lineage statement
                    The dataset is originally provided as a Microsoft Access database file (Waterbase_UWWTD_v6_20171207.mdb; Table T_DischargePoints). We have considered all UWWTP that are located in coastal NUTS 3 regions, those that limit with transitional and/or coastal water bodies (as defined in the Water Framework Directive). Country codes included in the "rptStateKey" field (Memeber State abbreviation) and  the values in the "dcpState" field have been replaced by the corresponding values indicated in the Table T_LOV. Validation and quality assurance remain up to primary data sources.

DescriptionEMODnet Human Activities aims to facilitate access to existing marine data on activities carried out in EU waters, by building a single entry point for geographic information on human uses of the ocean. The portal makes available information such as geographical position, spatial extent of a series of activities related to the sea, their temporal variation, time when data was provided, and attributes to indicate the intensity of each activity. The data are aggregated and presented so as to preserve personal privacy and commercially-sensitive information. The data also include a time interval so that historic as well as current activities can be included.
