Chemical status of European surface waters decreases while monitoring improves

Scientists from the University of Landau, Germany, have shown that surface waters throughout Europe are frequently exposed to numerous organic contaminants (e.g., pesticides, industrial chemicals) at concentrations that are detrimental to ecosystem health.

Freshwaters as one of the key anthropogenic resources thus remain threatened by chemical pollution, highlighting the urgent need for improved freshwater protection.
