Just over 85% of bathing water sites across Europe monitored last year met the European Union’s highest ‘excellent’ and most stringent quality standards for water cleanliness, according to the latest annual European bathing water quality report. The results published today give a good indication of where the best quality bathing waters are likely to be found this summer.

An overwhelming number — 95.4% — of the 21 831 bathing water sites monitored in the 28 EU Member States met the minimum quality requirements under EU rules, according to this year’s ulat ng European Commission at ng European Environment Agency (EEA). Bilang karagdagan, ang mga site ng bathing 300 na sinusubaybayan sa Albania at Switzerland ay kasama rin sa ulat.

The level of bathing sites meeting the most stringent ‘excellent’ quality standards rose slightly from 85.0% in 2017 to 85.1% last year. The number of those meeting the minimum ‘sufficient’ standing fell from 96% to 95.4% from 2017 to 2018. This minor drop is mostly due to the opening of new bathing waters sites for which the dataset of four bathing seasons required for the classification by the Directive is not yet available. In 2018, 301 (or 1.3%) of all bathing water sites in the EU, Albania and Switzerland were rated as having ‘poor’ water quality. This is slightly lower than the 1.4 % in 2017.

Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Commissioner Karmenu Vella said: “As World Environment Day on 5 June showed, we face many challenges. But it is also good to celebrate the green success stories of the European Union. The quality of European Bathing Water sites is one such story to which everyone can relate. Through good testing, reporting, monitoring and sharing of expertise, we are sure to continue improving the quality of our favourite swimming spots. Our new Environmental Implementation Review will help member states learn from each other how best to attain and keep the excellent standards we have achieved during the course of my mandate. I congratulated the EEA for helping to improve standards and also for providing this information in a regular and reliable way. That reliability allows you to make clear choices wherever you take the plunge this summer.”

EEA Executive Director Hans Bruyninckx said: “Our report confirms that member states’ efforts over the last 40 years, mainly in wastewater treatment, have paid off. Today, most Europeans enjoy excellent bathing water quality. However, this is only one of the many components, ranging from tackling plastic pollution to protecting marine life, we need to work on in order to achieve healthier seas, lakes and rivers.” 

Ang mga kinakailangan sa paglalaba ng tubig ay nakalagay sa EU’s Bathing Water Directive. Implementation of its rules has helped to vastly improve the quality of Europe’s bathing water over the last 40 years. Effective monitoring and management introduced under the directive combined with the investments in the urban waste water treatment have led to a drastic reduction in untreated or partially treated municipal and industrial waste ending up in the water. Under the rules, local authorities collect water samples at officially identified bathing sites throughout the swimming season. Samples are analysed for two types of bacteria that indicate pollution from sewage or livestock.

  • Sa apat na bansa, natagpuan ang 95% o higit pa sa mga bathing site na may mahusay na kalidad ng tubig: Cyprus (99.1% ng lahat ng mga site), Malta (98.9% ng lahat ng mga site), Austria (97.3% ng lahat ng mga site), at Greece (97 % ng lahat ng mga site).
  • Ang lahat ng iniulat na mga bathing water site sa Cyprus, Greece, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania at Slovenia ay hindi bababa sa sapat na kalidad sa 2018.
  • Ang tatlong bansa na may pinakamataas na bilang ng mga mahihirap na kalidad na mga bathing water site ay Italya (89 bathing water site o 1.6%), France (54 site o 1.6%) at Espanya (50 site o 2.2%). Sa paghahambing sa 2017, ang bilang ng mga mahihirap na kalidad na bathing sites sa France ay bumaba (mula sa 80 sa 2017 hanggang 54 sa 2018), habang may pagtaas sa mahihirap na kalidad ng tubig sa Italya (mula 79 hanggang 89) at sa Espanya (mula 38 sa 50).

Ang kontaminasyon ng tubig sa pamamagitan ng mga bakterya ng faecal ay nagpapatuloy sa isang panganib sa kalusugan ng tao, lalo na kung ito ay matatagpuan sa mga bathing site ng tubig. Ang paglangoy sa mga kontaminadong beach o lawa ay maaaring magresulta sa sakit. Ang mga pangunahing pinagmumulan ng polusyon ay dumi sa alkantarilya at tubig mula sa mga bukid at bukiran. Ang ganitong polusyon ay nagdaragdag sa panahon ng mabigat na pag-ulan at baha dahil sa dumi sa alkantarilya at likas na dumi ng tubig na nahuhugas sa mga ilog at dagat.

All EU member states, plus Albania and Switzerland, monitor their bathing sites according to the provisions of the EU’s Bathing Water Directive. The assessment of the bathing water quality under the Bathing Water Directive makes use of the values of two microbiological parameters: Intestinal enterococci and Escherichia coli. Bathing water quality is classified, depending on the levels of faecal bacteria detected, as ‘excellent’, ‘good’, ‘sufficient’ or ‘poor’, Where water is classified as ‘poor’, member states should take measures such as banning bathing or advising against it, providing information to the public, and taking suitable corrective actions.
