These are cross sections that where taken every 100m for the fifteen TIMIS rivers. Data not transformed into INSPIRE data model
In the detailed programme of measures, the types of measures related to hydromorphology (HY) and urban wastewater management (SWW) which are defined in the catalogue of measures of the second river basin management plan, were assigned to the individual water bodies. The objective of this assignation is to identify for each water body those measures that will help to reduce the pressures and deficits present in the water body, thereby improving its status or maintaining its good status.
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.
This dataset contains the extent of the floodplain of the 1995 flood event of the river Alzette. The dataset is structured according to the INSPIRE Annex III Theme - Natural Risk Zones.
The "good ecological potential" is the environmental quality objective defined by the water framework directive for artificial and heavily modified surface water bodies. The ecological potential is assessed in four classes ranging from 1 to 4 (good and higher, moderate, poor, bad). The classification of the ecological potential is based on the biological, physico-chemical and in some cases also the hydromorphological quality elements.
According to the Water Framework Directive (Directive 2000/60/EC ), macrophytes and diatoms are monitored as two sub-elements of the aquatic flora. Macrophytes are particularly sensitive to organic pollution, trophy and hydromorphology. The diatom assemblages are different in function of concentrations of nutrients and organic pollutants.
The macroinvertebrates are sampled according to the French method IBGN ( indice biologique global normalisé , agences de l' eau 2000). The results allow to classify the surface water bodies into 5 classes : high - good - moderate - poor - bad. Macroinvertebrates are sensitive to the hydromorphology, organic pollution , biological continuity , water regime and acidification. The Macroinvertebrates are one out of four biological parameters of the ecological status of surface water.

This dataset was reported by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg under the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive. Under article 15, 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). This reporting obligation is an Eionet core data flow Reporting under this obligation is used for EEA Core set of indicators Delivery process is managed by EEA
This dataset was reported by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg under the EU Floods Directive. Article 4 of the Floods Directive requires Member States to undertake a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (PFRA) for each river basin district, unit of management or the portion of an international river basin district or unit of management lying within their territory. The identification of Areas of Potential Significant Flood Risk (APSFR, Article 5) will be based on available or readily derivable information, including the requirements specified in Article 4 (PFRA) in the Directive. In the 1st implementation cycle Member States may apply Article 13.1 (transitional arrangements) and either report on a PFRA carried out before 22 December 2010 (Article 13.1(a)) or proceed directly to mapping and establishment of flood risk management plans (Article 13.1(b)). If Article 13.1(a) is applied, the result will include the identification of APSFR (Article 5), if Article 13.1(b) is applied, APSFR will not be identified; instead maps at the appropriate scale according to Article 6 (see Flood Hazard Maps and Flood Risk Maps) will be prepared.
