What is on the map?
The map reflects the most recent available information on implementation of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) in EU 27 as reported by the Member States under UWWTD (91/271/EEC). The last reporting exercise under UWWTD article 15 was organised in 20097 (UWWTD20097), with the European Commission aiming to receive information on the implementation of the UWWTD in the reference year 20075 (situation as at 31/12/20075) or 20086 (situation as at 31/12/20086). For EU15 (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and UK) the latest date to fully comply with the Directive was 31/12/2005.
The map shows:
• Summary diagrams on pathways of waste water (= type of treatment) based on total generated load in p.e. of all agglomerations ≥ 2000 p.e. in a Member State
• Location and size of agglomerations
• For agglomerations > 150.000 p.e. the pathways of waste water (= type of treatment) based on total generated load in p.e. in the agglomeration
For the scales 1 : 10 000 000 and less detailed summary diagrams are presented as pie charts for each Member State. The size of each segment of the pie charts is proportional to the percentage of the waste water of all agglomerations attributed to the respective wastewater pathway, in other words expressing the pollutant load undergoing the different types of treatment. The segments of the pies are coloured according to the different waste water pathways. The sum of these percentage values should be 100%. Please note that in cases , where the sum of percent values do not sum up to 100 % it is caused either by incomplete dataset or erroneous one provided. Moreover, “new” EU-Member States, for which the UWWTD-trasitional period has not passed until 31.12.20075 were nor required to differentiate the fraction of the generated load of an agglomeration entering the different treatment types.
For the scale of between 1 : 10 000 000 and 1:500.000 individual agglomerations are presented as purple dots with the perimeter of the dot reflecting the different size classes.
For a scale of 1:500.000 or more detailed all agglomerations with a size > 150.000 p.e. are displayed as pie charts. The size of each segment of the pie charts is proportional to the percentage of the waste water of the agglomerations attributed to the respective wastewater pathway. The segments of the pies are coloured according to the different wastewater pathways.
Data are displayed in the geographic coordinate system ETRS 89.
The map legend is shown on the left side of the window. Widely popular tools are available in the upper left corner of the map window to provide basic map operations - zoom in, zoom out, map shift (pan), object information, etc. After clicking on the selected agglomeration symbol, a pop-up window with basic information on the agglomeration is opened.
