The identification of European significant water management issues should also support the upcoming assessments of the published third RBMPs by the European Commission and the EEA, especially in terms of whether efforts and resources in the third cycle have been directed to addressing the most challenging issues.

Ten European significant water management issues have been selected for presentation in this report, which are categorised as follows:

  • Pollution issues – includes point source pollution, diffuse source pollution including scattered dwellings and pollution from mining,
  • Hydromorphological pressures – includes issues related to barriers, loss of lateral connectivity, pressures from hydropower and pressures from inland navigation,
  • Abstractions and water scarcity,
  • Aquaculture, and
  • Invasive alien species.
