According to the water framework directive WFD(DIR 2000/60/CE), important physico chemical parameters are measured in the surface water bodies for the assessment of the ecological status. The modalities for this monitoring are stated in the grand ducal Regulation of 30 December 2010 (règlement grand-ducal you 30 décembre 2010 concernant l 'évaluation of the dimension d' eau de surface).
The quiet urban landscape areas include relatively large, continuous open spaces of at least regional importance with a high recreational function and corresponding development for leisure and recreation. Its importance lies in the balancing function to the noisy and densely populated areas of the agglomeration of Luxembourg. The quiet urban landscape close to the residential area allows, for example, extensive walks with only occasional crossing of areas with higher noise levels.

6-meter strips in the LPIS reference parcels along forest edges. The forest edges layer is one of the Ecological Focus Areas (EFA) layers with serves to attribute forest edges to land parcels declared in the geospatial aid application GSAA. These areas are taken into account in the framework of the Greening scheme [Article 46 of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013] and Agri-Environment-Climate-Measures (AECM) [Article 28 of Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013]. Ecological Focus Areas (EFA) are areas designated to bring about benefits for the environment, improve biodiversity and maintain attractive landscapes. EFAs may include landscape features, buffer strips, catch crops, fallow land, areas with nitrogen fixing crops etc. The forest edges layer is part of the Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS). LPIS is a key component of the IACS. It is an IT system based on ortho imagery (aerial or satellite photographs) which records all agricultural parcels in the Member States. It serves two main purposes: to clearly locate all eligible agricultural land contained within reference parcels and to calculate their maximum eligible area (MEA). The LPIS is used for cross checking during the administrative control procedures and as a basis for on the spot checks by the paying agency
The chemical status of the surface water bodies is assessed as being good or failing to achieve good chemical status. The assessment of the chemical status for the second river basin management plan is based on the list of substances of directive 2008/105/EC as well as its environmental quality standards. The assessment without the ubiquist substances permita to get a differentiated picture of the actual situation.
The groundwater bodies are classified according to 6 states: no data available, very good, good, moderate, unsatisfactory, bad.

The relatively quiet urban oases include public green areas and open spaces with a high quality of living space and an appropriate design as compensation areas within walking distance of residential and work locations. Due to their inner-city location, they do not, or do not completely, meet the above-mentioned criteria of a quiet area, e. g. by showing an increased noise level or being significantly lower. However, the urban planning context of the areas has noise-reducing properties, which lead to the fact that the urban oases in their core areas are considerably calmer than their surroundings. These areas make it possible, for example, to take short walks for those seeking peace and quietness in the immediate vicinity of their homes or workplaces.
