EC Water Reporting Obligation
Under article 15(4), discharges from urban waste water treatment plants have to be monitored to verify compliance with the emission control standards.
Member States and Commission have jointly developed technical specifications for such reporting within WISE (Water Reporting System for Europe).
Delivery process or content of this obligation overlaps with another reporting obligation (http://rod.eionet.europa.eu/obligations/645). See also under "Extra information".
Reporting under this obligation is used for EEA Core set of indicators

The updated supporting documents for reporting under the next request by the Commission (Q-2011) are available on public EEA Circa interest group "WISE Water Directives reporting", subfolder for the UWWTD data request 2011 at http://forum.eionet.europa.eu/x_wise-reporting/lib...
See also subfolder for the UWWTD-WISE workshop on reporting on 18 Nov 2010, Brussels at http://forum.eionet.europa.eu/x_wise-reporting/lib...
The content of Q-2011 is in substance the same as that of Q-2009. Newly, provision of the information on the IAS in agglomeration bigger that 100 000 p.e. will be requested as mandatory. Moreover, 15 new parameters, which will enable pre-filling of OECD/EUROSTAT Joint Questionnaire, have been introduced into additional 3 tables. Provision of these additional parameters will be voluntary.Web tool has been developed to support countries in Q-2011 data compilation and subsequent quality checks.
What and how to report?
Tabular data in terms of xml-files, GIS shape-files (for reporting sensitive areas and their catchment), additional documents and reports under the UWWT Directive. There are two options to create requested UWWTD xml-files from tabular data (export from national Databases into Web tool or direct data compilation in xml-format).
The main reporting guidelines consist of:
1- Commission letter of request
2- Technical document: How to use Reportnet for reporting under the Urban Waste Water treatment Directive (91/271/EEC)
3- IT reporting web tool and supporting documents for reporting under the UWWTD (see details below)
1- Commission letter sets out the reference year for reporting (2009 or 2010) and provides the background of the main reporting requirements as well as the list of parameters for Q-2011.
The letter is available on public EEA Circa interest group "WISE Water Directives reporting", subfolder for the UWWTD data request 2011 at http://forum.eionet.europa.eu/x_wise-reporting/lib... and ETC/ICM website at http://icm.eionet.europa.eu/announcements/ann13103...
2- Technical document “How to use Reportnet for reporting under the Urban Waste Water treatment Directive (91/271/EEC)” explains how to use Reportnet for finding information and reporting information to the Commission. The document is being updated for Q-2011.
3- IT reporting web tool and supporting documents for reporting under the UWWTD are also available in subfolder for the UWWTD data request 2011.
IT reporting tool (WEB tool)
WEB tool is Data exchange and management tool, developed to support Member States in UWWTD data compilation and data quality checks. WEB tool can be used for import and export of xml-data and csv-data files and includes functionalities enabling data correction.
Supporting documents are made of:
- textual documents (including annexes):
Description of UWWTD data blocks for UWWTD Questionnaire, List of parameters for UWWTD Questionnaire, Data dictionary and codification of parameters for UWWTD Questionnaire, MS Excel Templates for UWWTD Questionnaire, Quidance document on how to use the web tool, guidance on the generation of the required GIS shapefiles for reporting Sensitive Areas and their catchment.
- XML schemas:
xml-schema specifies the structure and content of xml-files and is used for programming direct compilation of UWWTD data into xml format.
4-Other information related to UWWTD including Guidance document "Terms and Definitions of the UWWT Directive" is available from Circa at http://circa.europa.eu/Public/irc/env/wfd/library?...
