Risk assessment of the groundwater body regarding the good chemical state in 2027.
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 and the environmental quality standards established by the new directive 2013/39/EC.
Focal points where there is a risk of flooding
Due to the prolonged drought and the warm and sunny weather, we advise all citizens to reserve the use of drinking water, as far as possible, to essential uses such as food preparation and hygiene.

Phytoplancon is one of the 4 biological quality elements (BQE) for the assessment of the ecological status of the natural water bodies. The evaluation of this BQE is only relevant for the large rivers where the quantity of phytoplancton is significant and can be evaluated. The natural water bodies of typology VI present significant phytoplancton concentrations to allow an assessment. Some of the heavy modified waterbodies (HMWB) present significant phytoplancton concentrations too, these are the HMWB Sûre (WB III-2.2.1) and the HMWB Our (WB V-1.2). The annual frequency for phytoplancton monitoring is 6 samples between April and October.

The geostatistical interpolation map shows in real time the most probable distribution of the pollutant fine particles (PM10) between the different fixed measurement points that make up the telemetric network of Luxembourg, this at a resolution of 1km2.
