This Directive aims to classify each body of Surface Water (rivers) within the EU as ‘good’ or better. In order to be classified as ‘good’, levels of chemicals in each water system cannot breach set ‘Environmental Quality Standard’ (EQS) levels. ALS can provide experienced field technicians who can undertake sampling at Wastewater Treatment Works and Rivers upstream and downstream.
