    Description in English
    The surface water monitoring network is a physico-chemical and biological monitoring network with measuring stations all over Flanders. In 2000 the network consisted of ca 3250 measuring stations. A large number of measuring stations is located in water ways designated as "fish water" and/or "surface water destined for the production of drinking-water". The objectives of the monitoring network are plural:
    • determining the value of the parameters which occur in the water quality standards for surface waters;
    • determining the water quality by means of indices and water quality classes;
    • testing of results against the legal standards;
    • examining the impact of specific situations on water quality (for instance evaluation of the performance of purification plants, evaluation of investments projects, sanations, accidental spills,..);
    • knowing the water quality state as basis information for the elaboration of General Water Quality plans, advisements on permits,etc.
    Description in nl
    Het meetnet oppervlaktewater is een fysisch-chemisch en biologisch meetnet met meetpunten over heel Vlaanderen. In 2000 bestond het meetnet reeds uit ca, 3250 punten en het breidt zich continu verder uit (niet alle meetpunten worden jaarlijks onderzocht). Een groot aantal meetplaatsen is gelegen in waterlopen met bestemming ‘viswater’ en/of ‘oppervlaktewater bestemd voor de productie van drinkwater’. Verder zijn meetplaatsen gelegen op strategische plaatsen (gewestgrenzen, eindplaatsen van hoofdwaterlopen) of op- en afwaarts van RWZI's of belangrijke lozende bedrijven. Andere zijn meer projectgebonden gekozen (MAP- en pesticidenmeetnet). Langs de zeeschelde en zijrivieren zijn een 150 tal meetpunten gelegen die nuttig kunnen zijn voor het bepalen van de zijdelingse belasting. De doelstellingen van het meetnet oppervlaktewater zijn meervoudig : -meten van de waarde van de parameters voorkomend in de kwaliteitsnormen voor oppervlaktewateren; -bepalen van de waterkwaliteit door middel van indexen en waterkwaliteitsklassen; -toetsen van de meetgegevens aan de wettelijke normen; -nagaan van de impact van specifieke situaties op de waterkwaliteit (b.v. evaluatie van de werking van zuiveringsinstallaties, evaluatie van investeringsprojecten, saneringen, accidentele lozingen, evaluatie van het mestactieplan, ...); -kennen van de kwaliteitstoestand als basisinformatie voor het uitwerken van Algemene Waterkwaliteitsplannen (AWP's), advisering vergunningen, enz.
    Abstract in English
    The surface water monitoring network is a physico-chemical (water temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, COD, BOD, nutrients, heavy metals,...) and biological monitoring network (phytoplankton and phytobenthos, macro-invertebrates and fish) with measuring stations all over Flanders.
    Abstract in nl
    Het meetnet oppervlaktewater is een fysico-chemisch (temperatuur, opgeloste zuurstof, pH, CZV, BZV, nutriënten, zware metalen, ...) en biologisch monitoring netwerk (fytoplankton en fytobenthos, macro-invertebraten en vissen) met meetstations over heel Vlaanderen.
