Title V on the protection of public water and water quality of Legislative Royal Decree 1/2001 of 20 July, approving the revised text of the Water Act (TRLA) incorporates approved Spanish legislation aspects relating to the protection of water status under the provisions of Directive 2000/60 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October establishing a framework for Community action is established in the field of water policy (DMA). In pa rticular, Article 92 of TRLA, sets out the objectives of the protection of water and public water resources, which include, among others, prevent deterioration, protect and improve the status of water; establish specific measures to reduce pollution by priority substances; and ensure a sufficient supply of water in good condition. All these objectives are integrated into the environmental objectives for surface waters and protected areas covered by Article 92a. Finally, Article 92 ter of TRLA requires that each RBD establish monitoring programs of water status in order to obtain a coherent and comprehensive overview of the state.

Title V of TRLA is developed in Royal Decree 849/1986, of 11 April, approving the Public Water Regulation (RDPH) is approved. However, the development in this area, and in particular the protection of waters against priority substances from Directive 2008/105 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2008 concerning the environmental quality standards in the field of water policy developed by the arrangements provided for in Article 16 of the WFD and supplemented by subsequent acquires proper nouns, being transposed by Royal Decree 60/2011 of 21 January on the rules environmental quality in the field of water policy. So, in the current edition, the aspects relating to the protection of water status is partially regulated, filling the provisions of RDPH.

In this regard, monitoring and evaluation of the state and the protection of waters against priority substances is a complex matter and extensive that in the interests of legislative simplicity, it is that it is integrated into a single regulatory text. However, considering that its regulation means including a large number of articles and annexes, it is inappropriate to add at RDPH, although it is developing the title V of TRLA since 1986. It is therefore considered appropriate regulatory development new integrating all aspects of monitoring and evaluation of the status of water and environmental quality standards (EQS). In any case and to improve coordination that must exist between the various royal decrees that develop the TRLA thus avoiding regulatory dispersion and to contribute to the character of centrality that this matter should have this royal decree, it is considered appropriate to amend the RDPH and the other two hydrological planning regulations.


The RDPH in order to make it clear that it develops the title V of TRLA except for the regulation of the criteria for monitoring and evaluating the status of surface waters and environmental quality standards that should be governed by amending the provisions of this. Regulation of Public Water Management and Water Planning developing Titles II and III of the Water Act, approved by Royal Decree 927/1988, of July 29, Annexes 1 to 4 were repealed and as ministerial orders related thereto. These standards trasponían directives of the seventies on quality targets in the waters that were repealed by the WFD itself, since its objectives have been overcome and integrated by it. Finally, the Regulation of Water Planning (RPH), approved by Royal Decree 907/2007, of July 6, whose scope includes, among others, the inclusion of new items granting them the basic legislation changes. Thus, transposition is complemented by Spanish law of Articles 4, 7, 8, 10, 16 of the WFD, in compliance with the judgment of the Court of 24 October 2013 which states that the Kingdom of Spain has breached its obligations by failing to take all necessary measures to transpose Article 4.8; 7.2, and 10.1 and 2, and Annex V.1.3 and V.1.4.1.i) to iii) that article 8.2 of the WFD refers. In addition, the provisions whose content is collected in this royal decree as Royal Decree 60/2011, of January 21, on environmental quality standards in the field of water policy repealing; certain sections of the Order ARM / 2656/2008, dated 10 September, by which water planning instruction is approved; and MAM / 3207/2006, of September 25, Order amending supplementary technical instruction MMA-EECC-1/06, chemical and microbiological analysis for water determinations were approved.

Comply with the expected environmental objectives TRLA includes achieving good surface water which is to ensure the good ecological and chemical status and good ecological and chemical status for artificial and heavily modified water potential. Also, as an additional requirement, must comply with the applicable rules and protected areas objectives. Protect water status requires integrating the management of water both chemical elements as ecological, so that the program of measures is designed and developed in response to the achievement of good ecological and chemical status. So far both aspects are regulated through different instruments, so that the collection of chemical and biological criteria in a single standard facilitates knowledge and understanding of water legislation in implementation of Article 92 ter of TRLA.


II
The assessment of the status of water is an essential element in the enforcement of national and European waters. The assessment procedure State requires an adequate legal framework that will equip you with legal certainty, so that it is applied in an objective, true and consistent for all hydraulic administrations and be known for all concerned. Protect and achieve good conditions the program of measures of a river basin district. It also determines the level of demand exerted by the water administration under the conditions imposed on holders of concessions and authorizations for use of public water or authorizations for the discharge of wastewater. It is recalled that any act or omission that causes the deterioration of water status constitutes an infringement whose rating will depend on the damage to water or the environment and can become crime. In this regard, the Law 26/2007 of October 23, Environmental Responsibility, provides that the damage to water to produce significant adverse effects on the ecological or chemical status are considered environmental damage and, therefore, should be prevented, avoided or repaired by the responsible for the activity. Finally, the failure to achieve good water status, may result in the opening of a new infringement procedure against the Kingdom of Spain for breach of the DMA.


The WFD states that Member States must ensure the quality and comparability of the methods used for monitoring and evaluation of water status. Consequently, it is necessary to have homogeneous and basic design criteria for monitoring programs for making available a comprehensive, coherent and complete picture of the status and quality of the waters, and they are adopted by all water authorities to ensure a uniform, fair and comparable approach throughout Spain. Monitoring programs are a basic tool for water management, and should provide the information needed to evaluate the effectiveness of the measures taken and the degree of compliance with the objectives. Its design should allow, among others, the status of waters; identify the health of aquatic ecosystems based on their sustainability, wealth and biodiversity; determine the extent of water pollution; assess the consequences of the emission of pollutants from point and nonpoint sources of pollution; prevent or reduce damage caused by the presence of priority substances; assess the effect of hydro-morphological alterations; etc. Also, implementation of monitoring programs is essential to monitor the quality of waters which are intended for certain uses, particularly those used to supply populations.

To ensure comparability between Member States, the results of biological control and classifications of their monitoring systems to be compared through an intercalibration network. The results of the intercalibration exercise have been published in Decision 2013/480 / EU of the Commission of 20 September 2013 establishing the values ​​of the classifications of monitoring systems of the Member States following the exercise are set intercalibration. Spain must define reference conditions and limits consistent change class with the values ​​listed in Annexes I and II of the Decision. To this end reference conditions and class limits applicable to the types of rivers, lakes, reservoirs, transitional waters, coastal waters and heavily modified by the presence of Spanish ports of surface water status are published.

In addition, it is necessary that the methods used for monitoring are in conformity with international standards or any other national or international standards which ensure the provision of quality information and scientific comparability equivalent. As a result of the ongoing process of developing new standards and upgrade existing ones, the European Committee for Standardization has published new rules and others have been deleted. Consequently, Annex V of the WFD has been modified by Directive 2014/101 / EU of the Commission of 30 October 2014, adapting to the new requirements. In this line, and for the sake of the quality and comparability of the methods, the decree includes the adoption of various national standards or protocols to be used by Water Authorities to monitor the waters. These protocols set conditions for sampling, laboratory analysis and calculation of indicators, in accordance with the provisions of Annex V of the WFD.


Royal Decree 60/2011, of January 21, incorporated measures to protect waters off priority substances since I transposed Directive 2008/105 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December on the environmental quality standards in the field of water policy and Directive 2009/90 / EC, of ​​31 July, laying down technical specifications for chemical analysis establishing and monitoring the status of water. He also adapted to current legislation rules of protection of waters against hazardous substances developed under Directive 76/464 / EEC of 4 May on pollution caused by certain dangerous substances discharged into the environment Community water. The recent adoption of Directive 2013/39 / EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 August amending Directives 2000/60 / EC and 2008/105 / EC are amended as priority substances in the field of water policy, agrees to review the Royal Decree 60/2011, of January 21, to adapt to new requirements arising from the amendment. Likewise, it should include requirements on Watchlist defined in Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/495 of the Commission of 20 March 2015 establishing a watch list of substances for the purposes of establishing monitoring Union level in the field of water policy, in accordance with Directive 2008/105 / EC of the European Parliament and the Council.


III
Finally, compliance with the Law 27/2006 of 18 July, by which the rights of access to information, public participation and access to justice in environmental matters are regulated; of Law 14/2010 of July 5th, on infrastructure and geographic information services in Spain; and international obligations and commitments made by the Kingdom of Spain, especially those derived from its inclusion as a Member State of the European Union, requires the availability of a national information system on the status and quality of surface waters, managed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, which collects data from monitoring programs of water each river basin district, thus contributing to increase and enhance the transparency of the water authority and ensure access to information in this area to all citizens. It also helps to comply with Regulation (EU) No 1143/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2014 on the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species which states that in the system monitoring of these species the information provided by existing monitoring systems under Article 8 of the DMA is used. Finally, monitoring of coastal waters quality elements that contribute to assess the state of the marine environment under Law 41/2010 of 29 December on the protection of the marine environment, promotes the use of information generated. All this in relation to the information system on the state of water bodies (NABIA, for inland waters in electronic format).

In short, this Royal Decree is to establish basic and consistent criteria for the design and implementation of programs track the status of surface water bodies and for additional control of protected areas; define the criteria, reference conditions and limits class switch to classify the ecological status of water bodies; establish EQS for priority substances and preferred to classify the status of waters and define the procedure for calculating these standards for specific pollutants; and finally collect the information exchange obligations and define the information system on the state of the waters for the enforcement of laws regulating the rights of access to information and public participation.

The final part of the decree incorporates various provisions that facilitate the implementation and development of this Royal Decree. It is incorporated, also an additional provision to extend until 30 September 2016, the drought declaration approved by Royal Decree 355/2015 of 8 March, for the scope of the Hydrographic Confederation of Júcar, and 356/2015 of 8 May to the scope of the Hydrographic Confederation of Segura, given the persistence of the drought situation in the mentioned basins.
IV



The royal decree is issued in accordance with the provisions of the second final provision of TRLA, which empowers the government and the then Minister of Environment, now Minister of Agriculture, Food and Environment to issue, within the scope of their competences, the necessary measures for its development and application.

This rule has the legal form of basic legislation in accordance with the provisions of Article 149.1.23.ª of the Constitution to the extent that it is an indispensable necessary complement to ensure common minimum regulatory protection of the environment applicable for all river basin districts so that acts as prevalent competential title, as on water converge on the same issue several different titles of competence in favor of the state. As noted by constitutional jurisprudence, all the Judgment 227/1988, of 29 November, the rule is limited to "establish some requirements of principle, in order to ensure the quality of inland waters and their environment, without detracting the competence of the autonomous communities to develop or supplement those general rules and to implement them in the field of administrative powers on the hydraulic public domain "so that" find it easy to fit into the basic legislation on environmental protection, which the State It corresponds to dictate ex art. 149.1.23.ª of the Constitution. " On the other hand, its projection in the intercommunity basins operate as full for implementation by basin organizations title, while there is no other authority in the demanio that the Hydrographic Confederations. Thus a uniform river basin districts in the state competition application and a common regulatory minimum in other basins, which can effectively meet the requirements arising from European Union law is guaranteed. In any case, the criteria are considered as minimum requirements and leaves room for the regional rules allowing legislative development by the Autonomous Communities with responsibility for the environment.

This royal decree has been informed by the Advisory Council on the Environment and the National Water Council. In processing they have been consulted the autonomous communities and entities representing the sectors affected and has been subjected to public information.

By virtue of a proposal from the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Environment, according to the Council of State and after deliberation by the Council of Ministers at its meeting on September 11, 2015,

4. The information generated from monitoring programs be collected in the information system on the state and quality of the waters regulated in Article 30.

Article 5. Control Surveillance Program.

1. The surveillance monitoring program is intended to obtain a comprehensive overview of the state of water bodies.

It is composed of:

A) The "sub monitoring the general state of the waters" to perform the assessment of the general state of surface waters and changes or trends experienced long term these water bodies as a result of the activity anthropogenic widespread.

B) The "sub reference" which will assess long-term trends in the state of water bodies due to changes in natural conditions and establish terms of reference for each type of water body.

C) 'emission control sub sea and cross-border', which will allow to estimate the pollutant load that crosses the Spanish border and which is transmitted to the marine environment.

2. The results of this program will allow to design effective and efficient future control programs, as well as providing information that serves to complement and validate the study of the impact of human activity on the status of surface water under Article 41.5 of TRLA and it forms part of the general demarcation preceding the drafting and proposed revision of the management plan.

3. The criteria for the design and implementation of subprograms that make up the surveillance monitoring program are defined in Annex I A.

Article 6. Program operational control.

1. The operational monitoring program is to determine the status of water bodies at risk of failing to meet environmental objectives and assess changes occurring in the status of such bodies resulting from the programs of measures.

Will be conducted on all water bodies identified at risk of not meeting environmental based on the outcome of the analysis of pressures and impacts or the results of the monitoring sub-state objectives, and which discharged pollutants the list of priority substances listed in Annex IV.

2. In the information associated with each station operational monitoring program risk causing pressures on the water body will be brought applying the classification listed in Annex I B.

At a minimum, the water bodies at risk will be identified by hazardous substances from point sources and pesticides from agricultural sources, and are referred respectively hazardous substances control point source and control of pesticides from agricultural sources.

3. The criteria for the design and implementation of operational monitoring program are defined in Annex I B.

Article 7. Control Program research.

1. The control program of research will be implemented if the source of the failure is unknown environmental objectives; if the surveillance monitoring indicates the unlikelihood that the objectives are achieved and has not started operational control to determine the causes which have not been achieved; and to determine the magnitude and impact of accidental pollution.

This control will define the program of measures required to meet environmental objectives and, where appropriate, specific measures to remedy the effects of accidental pollution.

2. The checks carried out in order to determine the specific contaminants in the basin listed in Annex VI are included in this program, and in particular Watchlist regulated in Article 25.

Article 8. Requirements for additional control of the water masses registry of protected areas.

1. In the following areas of the register of protected areas Article 99a of TRLA, control programs apply at least these additional requirements:


A) Water bodies intended for the production of water for human consumption, and from one or more collection points provide an average of more than 100 cubic meters per day, they will undergo additional controls of priority substances and pollutants discharged in significant quantities; paying particular attention to substances that affect the state and regulated in Annex I of Royal Decree 140/2003 of 7 February, establishing health criteria for the quality of water for human consumption. Stations or sampling points for this control will be identified as control program intended to supply water.

B) Water bodies in which declared protection of significant aquatic species economically the areas are located, is subject to additional monitoring in the environmental control point designated by the environmental body to control the causes of pollution that might affect these species. The selected sampling points for this control will be identified as environmental control program areas of significant aquatic species economically.

In these areas are including for the production of shellfish and other marine invertebrates, which established the monitoring requirements be taken into account in Royal Decree 345/1993, of 5 March, laying down standards of water quality and production of mollusks and other marine invertebrates.

C) The bodies of water in which bathing waters declared areas are located are subject to additional monitoring in the environmental control point designated by the environmental body to control the causes of pollution that might affect bathing water areas, taking into account the environmental profiles produced according to Royal Decree 1341/2007, of 11 October, on the management of the quality of bathing water. The selected sampling points for this control will be identified as environmental monitoring program of bathing water.

D) Water bodies affected by pollution by nitrates under Royal Decree 261/1996 of 16 February on the protection of waters against pollution caused by nitrates from agricultural sources will be included in the program operational control, and take into account the specifications outlined in the standard itself why vulnerable areas declared as protected area. Stations or sampling points for this control will be identified as Control Program waters affected by nitrates from agricultural sources.

E) Water bodies including sensitive areas declared in accordance with Royal Decree 509/1996, of 15 March, implementing Royal Decree-Law 11/1995 of 28 December, laying down applicable to the treatment of urban waste water standards are included in operational monitoring program and take into account the specifications mentioned in the standard itself why these areas are designated as protected area. Stations or sampling points for this control will be identified as water control program in sensitive areas urban waste.

ANNEX I


Basic criteria of design and implementation of monitoring programs

Section A. surveillance monitoring program: design and implementation criteria

The surveillance monitoring program is intended to obtain a comprehensive overview of the state of water bodies and is composed of subroutines listed in Article 5, that is:

A.1) Sub overall monitoring of the water.

A.2) Subprogram reference.

A.3) Sub emission control and sea border.

As defined in Article 3, it is understood by sampling station to the set of sampling points used to evaluate the state of the water body, with a sampling point geographic location of sampling.

Therefore, each water should be exclusively a station that can contain multiple sampling points. When a sampling station contains several points, not possible to associate geographical coordinates may be applied to the station the centroid of the water body.

A.1) Sub overall monitoring of the water.

Object. The "sub-program monitoring the general state of the waters" (or tracking state) aims to gather the information needed for the assessment of the overall status of surface waters and changes or trends experienced by these water bodies long term as a result of the widespread anthropogenic activity.

The results of this monitoring shall be reviewed and used, in combination with the method of analysis of pressures and impacts (Article 41 of TRLA) to determine the requirements of control programs in hydrological plans current and future basin.

Selection of sampling stations. Sampling stations should be located in water bodies that reflect the heterogeneity of the demarcation, based on the types of existing water bodies, anthropogenic pressures that are already subject -químico assessment, ecological and generally state that results .

The number of stations included in the subprogram will depend on the heterogeneity of the basin, and will be greater the more heterogeneous it. In any case, a number of stations that is statistically representative of the demarcation be selected.

Be ensured that the control is effected at least at points where:


The level of water flow is significant within the river basin district, including points on large rivers where the catchment is greater than 2,500 km2.

The volume of water is significant within the river basin district, including large lakes and reservoirs.

The conditions surrounding waterways are not under the direct and immediate influence of a source of contamination nor subject to the tides.

The results of this subprogram allow us to extrapolate evaluation status of a body of water with the same type that have not been sampled, provided they are subject to the same pressures as the mass of water sampled.

Elements and sample quality. In the Sub-program monitoring of the state should control all biological quality elements, hydromorphological and general physico-chemical, and substances from the list of priority being dumped and pollutants discharged in significant quantities known as specific contaminants.

At a minimum, the stations will be sampled for one year during the period covering the river basin management plan. Exceptionally, you can make a check once every three updates of the River Basin Management Plan in water bodies classified in good condition in the period prior planning, and provided from the examination of the impact of human activity carried out by exercising pressures and impacts, there is no evidence that have changed the pressures they are under water bodies.

When deemed necessary to increase the confidence level of pressure and impact exercise, may increase the number of water bodies to control in order to complete and validate the risk assessment to achieve the environmental objectives of the masses Water.
During
control elements are controlled according to the following sampling frequencies:

Biological quality elements are monitored once except phytoplankton will be at least twice the time of sampling adapting to the characteristics of the water body to be monitored.

Hydromorphological quality elements are monitored once except the hydrological regime will be continued for rivers and once a month for lakes.

General elements and specific pollutants physico-chemical quality will be monitored at least every three months, but monthly monitoring is recommended.

Priority substances in water will be monitored monthly. However, when the analysis is performed in sediment or biota frequency shall be as indicated in paragraph D of this Annex.

In summary, annual frequencies are:

* Bodies of Water with significant eutrophication trend.

In specific and justified cases as may apply greater intervals depending on the technical knowledge and expert judgment.

The dates chosen for monitoring should be such as to reduce to maximize the impact of seasonal variation on the results, which will ensure that the results reflect changes in the water body due to changes caused by pressure anthropogenic and natural conditions. In any case the detailed sampling protocols official specifications are followed.

A.2) Subprogram reference.

Object. The subprogram reference is to assess long-term trends in the state of water bodies due to changes in natural conditions and establish terms of reference for each type of water body.

Selection of sampling stations. Sampling stations should be located in bodies of water that do not show alterations or deterioration minor, to allow the conditions normally associated with the type of body of water in the absence of significant pressures are given.

For the sake of consistency and comparability of results, the Directorate General of Water, in coordination with river basin districts establish the criteria and procedure for the validation of the reference stations.

Elements and sample quality. In the subprogram reference they should be sampled at least all biological quality elements, hydromorphological and general physico-chemical.

At a minimum, the stations will be sampled for one year during the period covering the river basin management plan.

The elements of biological and hydromorphological quality will be monitored once except the phytoplankton that is twice. The general physico-chemical quality elements will be monitored when go to sample biological elements.

When a reference station is integrated into the state monitoring subprogram, the design criteria provided in Section A.1 apply) provided they are more demanding.

A.3) Sub emission control and sea border.

Object. The emission control subprogram sea and cross-border aims to estimate the pollutant load that crosses the Spanish border and which is transmitted to the marine environment.

Selection of sampling stations. Sampling stations should be located in water bodies crossing the border of a Member State and which discharge into the marine environment. In his selection will be addressed as provided in:


Convention on cooperation for the protection and sustainable use of the waters of the Spanish-Portuguese hydrographic basins, made "ad referendum" in Albufeira on 30 November 1998 (Albufeira Convention).

Convention on the Protection of the Marine Environment of the North East Atlantic (OSPAR Convention), ratified by Spain on 25 January 1994.

Convention for the Protection of the Mediterranean Sea against Pollution (Barcelona Convention), ratified by Spain on 17 February 1999.

Administrative Agreement between Spain and France on water management, signed in Toulouse on 15 February 2006.

Elements and sample quality.

Quality elements and applicable sampling frequencies integrated in the emissions control subprogram sea and border stations are under the control program defined emissions in the OSPAR, Barcelona and Albufeira.

When a station emission control sea border and is integrated into the state monitoring subprogram, the design criteria provided in Section A.1) always apply as they are more demanding.

Section B. Program operational control: design and implementation criteria

Object. As stated in Article 6, the operational monitoring program is to determine the status of water bodies at risk of failing to meet environmental objectives and assess changes occurring in the status of such bodies resulting from the programs measures.

Control results allow to establish or confirm the status of bodies of water and evaluate the results of the programs of measures.

In the information associated with each station operational monitoring program risk causing pressures on the water body by applying the following classification shall be indicated:

1. significant point sources.

2. significant diffuse sources.

3. Significant water withdrawals.

4. Significant water regulations.

5. significant morphological alterations.

6. Other significant anthropogenic inputs.

7. Land use.

Selection of sampling stations. The sampling stations will be located in the following bodies of water:
Bodies of Water
at risk of not achieving environmental based on the outcome of the analysis of pressures and impacts or results of the monitoring programs the state goals.

Bodies of Water in which discharged pollutants from the list of priority substances listed in Annex IV.

Whereas each water contains a single station and each station can contain multiple sampling points the following criteria for the selection of points and bodies of water to be sampled shall apply:

Mass at risk from significant point source:

A sufficient number of points within each body in order to assess the magnitude and impact of these pressures will be selected.

If a body is subject to various pressures from point sources, points may be selected to assess the magnitude and impact of these pressures as a whole.

Stations corresponding to these masses will be identified as control stations point source pollutants.

Among them, the stations will be identified in water bodies at risk from the release of hazardous substances, identified as hazardous substances control point source station.

Mass at risk from significant diffuse source pressures:

A sufficient number of points selected to assess the magnitude and impact of these pressures masses be chosen.

The selection of these bodies shall be such to be representative of the risks arising from the existence of pressures from diffuse sources.

When the diffuse source is agricultural, stations corresponding to these masses will be identified as control stations pesticides from agricultural sources.

Among them, the stations will be identified in water bodies at risk from pesticides from agricultural sources, identifying himself as pesticide control of agricultural origin station.

Mass at risk from significant hydromorphological pressure:

A sufficient number of points selected to assess the magnitude and impact of these pressures masses be chosen.

The selection of bodies shall be indicative of the overall impact of the hydromorphological pressure to which all the bodies are subject.

Elements and sample quality. Program operating control shall be sampled:


Elements sensitive to pressure which is subject to the water mass and the most sensitive indicators of said elements biological quality.

To support this sampling, when they go to sample biological quality elements, you can sample the general physico-chemical quality elements if deemed necessary.

All priority substances discharged, and pollutants discharged in significant quantities.

Elements sensitive to pressure which is subject to the water mass and the most sensitive indicators of said elements hydromorphological quality.

The stations will be sampled throughout the period that covers the river basin management plan. However, the operational monitoring program can be modified during the period of the river basin management plan on the basis of the information gathered from the study of pressures and impacts or monitoring programs in the state. In particular, the frequency may be reduced when it is considered that the impact is not important, the relevant pressure is removed or the security is reached.

The elements are controlled with the following sampling frequencies:

Elements most sensitive to the pressure at which the mass is subjected biological water quality is monitored according to the following distribution: phytoplankton twice a year, diatoms and macroinvertebrates once a year, and macrophytes and fish every three years.

Elements most sensitive to the pressure to which is subject the water body Hydromorphological quality will be monitored every six years, except the hydrological regime will be continuous for rivers and lakes monthly for.

General elements and specific pollutants physico-chemical quality will be monitored at least every three months, but monthly monitoring is recommended.

Priority substances in water will be monitored monthly. However, when the analysis is performed in sediment or biota frequency shall be as indicated in paragraph D of this Annex.

* Bodies of Water with significant eutrophication trend.

In specific and justified cases as may apply greater intervals depending on the technical knowledge and expert judgment.

The dates chosen for monitoring should be such as to reduce to maximize the impact of seasonal variation on the results, which will ensure that the results reflect changes in the water body due to changes caused by pressure anthropogenic and natural conditions. In any case the detailed sampling protocols official specifications are followed.

Section C. Additional monitoring for protected areas Requirements

Control programs and operational monitoring that are subject water bodies will be supplemented to meet the following additional requirements.

C.1) Control of water intended for supply.

Object. This control consists of the set of sampling points that allow monitoring to be protected areas for the abstraction of water for the production of water for human consumption.

Selection of sampling points:

Water bodies that provide an average of more than 100 cubic meters per day destined to supply population will be monitored.

A sufficient number of sampling points in the water bodies in order to assess the magnitude and impact of the pressures to which it is subject will be chosen.

Quality elements and sampling frequencies:

Control on priority substances discharged and pollutants discharged in significant quantities will be made with particular attention to substances that affect the state and regulated in Annex I of Royal Decree 140/2003, of February 7, by which health criteria for the quality of water for human consumption.

Additional controls will be carried out with the frequencies set out below:




population served





frequency






<10000 inhabitants





quarterly






of 10,000 to 30,000 inhabitants





8 times a year






> 30000 inhabitants





monthly





C.2) Water control in areas of protection of habitats or species.

Object. This control consists of the set of sampling points that allow monitoring of protected areas included in the Natura 2000 network where the maintenance or improvement of water status constitutes an important tool for the protection of habitats or species factor.

Selecting stations or sampling points. The stations will be located in water bodies at risk of not achieving the environmental objectives, meaning they achieve good condition and comply with the rules and objectives of protection arising from the protection of species and habitats. The risk is assessed through the analysis of pressures and impacts and the results of the monitoring programs of the state.

Quality elements and sampling frequencies:


Quality elements and sampling frequencies will be defined according to the same criteria of design and implementation of operational control program, developed in section B) of this Annex.

When the protection of species or habitats requires the establishment of additional elements of quality and demanding sampling frequencies must be reflected in the Plan of landscape management agreement between the river basin district and competent authorities in the space management.

This control will continue until the areas meet the requirements for water established by the legislation under which they are designated and when they reach the good state.

Section D. specific monitoring of priority substances and pollutants requirements

Control programs and operational monitoring will be supplemented to meet specific requirements for monitoring and priority pollutants.

Object. The monitoring of priority substances and pollutants has two objectives:

Assess compliance with the NCA, expressed as an annual average or maximum admissible concentration, and relative to water or biota.

The analysis of long-term trends of certain substances in sediment and biota.

Selection of sampling points:

A sufficient number of points in the water bodies in order to assess the magnitude and impact of the point and diffuse sources of these substances will be chosen.

To control pollution from point sources, in the interests of the representativeness of the sample, the sampling point must be located outside the mixing zone defined poured in Article 26 of this royal decree.

Elements and sample quality. Control of NCA in water, sediment and biota:

Article 20 of this Royal Decree establishes the substances to be measured in water or biota. Article 21 regulates the possibility of using matrices and alternative taxa of biota. Article 22 sets the conditions for the use of complementary matrices.

Addition to the analysis of the concentration of priority substances, control can be supplemented with the analysis of parameters related to bioavailability in order to be able to assess compliance with the NCA.

For the water matrix sample rate is set out in paragraphs A and B of this Annex, with monthly and quarterly for priority substances for other pollutants, although it is recommended that either monthly.

For the matrix sediment or biota monitoring shall be conducted at least once a year, unless technical knowledge and expert judgment justify another interval.

The substances indicated with the numbers 5, 21, 28, 30, 35, 37, 43 and 44 of Annex IV A are persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic and ubiquitous (Ubiquitous PBT) substances. For these substances, the competent bodies may make less intensive monitoring required for in the preceding paragraph. As a guideline the monitoring should take place every three years except if technical knowledge and expert judgment justify another interval.

This condition may be applied when monitoring is representative and is available as a basis of statistically solid reference regarding the presence of these substances in the aquatic environment.

Analysis of long-term trends in sediment and biota:

Article 24 of this Royal Decree establishes the substances which should be carried out analysis of the long-term trend regarding the concentrations to ensure that such concentrations do not significantly increase or the sediments or the biota.

As a guideline, monitoring of sediment and biota may have a three-year, except often if technical knowledge and expert judgment justify another interval.

Section B. Criteria for the combination of indicators of biological quality elements

B.1) General and specific criteria:

1. The classification of the ecological status of a water body is assessed through an iterative process, outlined in the following figure, which includes analysis of the values ​​of the biological quality, followed by analysis of the general chemical and physicochemical indicators; and finally, the hydromorphological indicators are analyzed.

2. Initially the degree of deviation is calculated between the values ​​of the biological quality values ​​observed with the reference conditions set out in Annex II. When these indicators correspond to different pressures or are different evaluations the most restrictive value is used.

3. When available values ​​of several relevant indicators of the same element of quality and sensitive at the same pressure or a gradient general pressure, should combine the results of the indicators to obtain a single status value element of biological quality in question.

4. When the indicators corresponding to different pressures the most restrictive for the purposes of classification of ecological status value is adopted.

5. For the sake of consistency and comparability of results, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, in coordination with river basin districts will define specific criteria for combining indicators corresponding to the elements of biological quality to be approved by Instruction and incorporated into this Annex.

The iterative procedure for assessing the ecological status of water is reflected in the following scheme:





B.2) Confidence level classification status or ecological potential:

1. The assessment of the status or ecological potential of surface water bodies within the meaning of River Basin Management Plan, will be made from the available data sets of a full planning period of 6 years duration.

2. The following criteria were taken into account:

A) When the results are homogeneous, indicators are calculated from available data series full planning period of 6-year being reviewed.

B) When the results present a variable increasing trend, decreasing or indicators will be obtained from the available data sets period last year.

In this case, you must analyze the data that are representative of the quality or state of the water body ruling:

Data with high uncertainty, in which case you should increase the frequency of control.

Data obtained in circumstances of exceptional temporary deterioration caused by both natural causes or force majeure that could not reasonably be foreseen.

Data obtained in circumstances due to accidents.

Data obtained in circumstances of circumstantial deterioration of status exist any pressure.

Data of questionable reliability for unknown reasons, in which case it should include the mass of water in the control program research.

It must justify if they decide to use the data obtained in the circumstances described above.

3. It should perform the statistical analysis of data sets available to estimate the measurement uncertainty of the results of the monitoring programs. This will include the methods and results of the sampling.

4. The confidence level of classification of the elements of quality and ecological status is calculated from the indicators obtained and corresponding to a full planning period.

5. The confidence level of the assessment of the status or ecological potential is classified as high, medium and low based on:

The measurement uncertainty of the data sampling control programs used for the indicators.


The availability of indicators for all quality items or only for those more sensitive to pressure.

Confidence levels of the classification of biological quality elements, hydromorphological and physico-chemical or chemical.

The data consistency with the pressures to which the surface water bodies are exposed.

6. The assessment of the status or ecological potential made based on values ​​of the reference conditions well with high uncertainty obtained either from insufficient by interpolation data and expert judgment shall be considered a low level of confidence.

7. For the sake of comparability and homogeneity, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, in coordination with river basin districts develop criteria to calculate the level of confidence of the assessment of status or ecological potential to be approved by Instruction and incorporated into this Annex.

Section C. Technical specifications of the chemical analysis

C.1) Methods of Analysis:

A) The methods of chemical analysis, including field and laboratory methods used for the purposes of evaluating the results of the networks established control for monitoring the condition contained in Article 42.1.d) of TRLA, and in particular the substances listed in Annexes IV, V and VI, will be validated and documented in accordance with EN ISO / IEC-17025 or other equivalent standards accepted internationally.

B) All methods of analysis applied are based on an uncertainty of measurement of 50% or less (k = 2) estimated at the level of the NCAs and a limit of quantification equal or below a value of 30% of the relevant NCA.

C) In the absence of a relevant NCA for a given parameter, or in the absence of a method of analysis complying with the criteria in section C.1.b), the analysis shall be conducted using the best available techniques not entailing disproportionate costs .

C.2) Calculation of mean values:

A) If the measured amounts of physico-chemical or chemical parameters of a given sample are below the limit of quantification, the measurement results will be set at half the value of the limit of quantification for the calculation of mean values .

B) If a calculated mean value of the measurement results referred to in paragraph refers to) is below the limits of quantification, the value shall be considered "below the limit of quantification '.

C) Paragraph C.2.a) shall not apply to the parameters that are total sums of a given group of physico-chemical parameters or chemical, including their metabolites, degradation and reaction relevant. In these cases, results below the limit of quantification of the individual substances shall be set to zero.

C.3) quality assurance and control. Laboratories, for the sake of quality assurance and control of its results:

A) implement quality management practices conform to EN ISO / IEC-17025 or other equivalent standards accepted internationally.

B) They should demonstrate their capabilities physicochemical analysis or chemical parameter using:

I. Participation in proficiency testing programs covering the methods of analysis referred to in section C.1) .a) at concentration levels that are representative of the monitoring programs of water.

(1) CAS: Chemical Abstracts Service.

(2) When selected groups of substances have, unless they are explicitly mentioned, certain typical representatives are defined in the context of fixing NCA.
priority, priority and other dangerous pollutants:
(3) three kinds of substances are distinguished.

Priority substances are those that present a significant risk to the Community waterways, or through it, including the risks of this kind to waters used for the abstraction of drinking water, and regulated through Article 16 of the Directive 2000/60 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October. Among these substances are priority hazardous substances (Article 16.3 of Directive 2000/60 / EC).

Other contaminants: they are not a priority but pollutants for which the EQS are identical to those laid down in legislation on hazardous substances applicable before the adoption of Directive 2008/105 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2008 on environmental quality standards in the field of water policy.

(4) This parameter is the EQS expressed as an annual average value (AA-EQS). Unless otherwise specified, it applies to the total concentration of all isomers.

(5) Inland surface waters encompass rivers and lakes and artificial water bodies or very related modified.

(6) This parameter is the EQS expressed as a maximum allowable concentration (MAC-EQS). When 'not applicable' is indicated in the MAC-EQS column, it is considered that the AA-EQS values ​​protect against pollution peaks in the short term in the case of continuous discharges since they are significantly lower than the values ​​calculated on the basis of acute toxicity.


(7) Unless otherwise indicated, the biota EQS refer to fish. Vicariously may be tracked other taxa of biota or other matrix, provided the NCA applied provide an equivalent level of protection. For substances with numbers 15 (fluoranthene) and 28 (PAH), the biota EQS refers to crustaceans and molluscs. For the purposes of assessing the chemical status, not suitable monitoring fluoranthene and PAHs in fish. For the substance with the number 37 (Dioxins and similar compounds), the biota EQS refer to fish, crustaceans and molluscs in accordance with paragraph 5.3 of the Annex to Regulation (EU) No 1259/2011 of the Commission of 2 December 2011 amending Regulation (EC) no 1881/2006 amending as regards the maximum levels of dioxins, dioxin-like PCBs and non dioxin-like PCBs in foodstuffs (OJ L 320, 3.12.2011, p. 18).

(8) As regards the group of priority substances covered by brominated diphenylethers (No. 5), the EQS refers to the sum of the concentrations of congener No. 28, 47, 99, 100 , 153 and 154.

(9) Only compounds tetra, penta, hexa and heptabromodifeniléter (CAS 40088-47-9 numbers, 32534-81-9, 36483-60-0, No. 68928-80-3, respectively).

(10) With respect to cadmium and its compounds (No. 6) the EQS values ​​vary depending on the water hardness according to five categories (Class 1: <40 mg CaCO3 / l, class 2: 40 to <50 mg CaCO3 / l, class 3: 50 to <100 mg CaCO3 / l, class 4: 100 to <200 mg CaCO3 / l and class 5: ≥ 200 mg CaCO3 / l).

(11) No points for this group of substances no indicative parameter. The parameter or parameters indicative should be defined through the analytical method.

(12) DDT total comprises the sum of the isomers 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethane (CAS No. 50-29-3; EU No. 200-024-3); 1,1,1-trichloro-2- (o-chlorophenyl) -2- (p-chlorophenyl) ethane (CAS 789-02-6 No; No. EU 212-332-5); 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis (p-chlorophenyl) -ethylene (CAS 72-55-9 No; No. 200-784-6 EU), and 2,2- 1,1-dichloro bis (p-chlorophenyl) ethane (CAS No. 72-54-8; EU No. 200-783-0).

(13) These EQS refer to bioavailable concentrations of the substances.

(14) nonylphenol (CAS 25154-52-3, EU 246-672-0), including isomers 4-nonylphenol (CAS 104-40-5, EU 203-199-4) and 4- nonylphenol (branched) (CAS 84852-15-3, EU 284-325-5).

Section B. Application of environmental quality standards set out in paragraph A

1. A surface water body, applying the AA-MA when the arithmetic mean of the different measures concentrations times during the year, each point representing the water body must not exceed the standard.

The calculation of the arithmetic mean, the analytical method used and, when not available, an appropriate method of analysis meeting the minimum performance criteria, the mode of implementation of the NCA shall comply with those implementing acts which technical specifications for technical control and quality of analytical results are adopted, in particular those listed in Annex III C.

2. It is considered that a body of surface water meets the MAC-EQS when the measured concentration at any point representative of the water body must not exceed the standard.

However, competent bodies may introduce statistical, such as a percentile calculation, to ensure an acceptable level of confidence and precision for determining compliance with the MAC-EQS methods.

If the introduction of the relevant bodies, such statistical methods shall comply with detailed rules established in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 9.2 of Directive 2008/105 / EC of 16 December on the environmental quality standards in the field of water policy.

3. Water EQS laid down in this Annex are expressed as total concentrations in the whole water sample.

As an exception to the first paragraph, in the case of cadmium, lead, mercury and nickel (hereinafter 'metals') the EQS water refers to the dissolved concentration, ie the dissolved phase of a sample of water obtained by filtration through 0.45 um membrane or any other equivalent or pretreatment, when indicated specifically, the bioavailable concentrations.

When the results of the controls with the corresponding NCA, you may consider:

A) natural background concentrations of metals and their compounds, where such concentrations prevent compliance with the value set by the corresponding NCA.

B) hardness, pH, dissolved organic carbon or other water quality parameters that affect the bioavailability of metals, for what you have to determine the bioavailable concentrations by appropriate bioavailability models.


4. The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, for the sake of standardization and comparability of results, may develop methodological guidelines in specifying and develop procedures for implementing the NCAs set out in paragraph A.

Section C. Technical Specifications on Watchlist

1. The watchlist integrates the set of selected from those of which the available information indicates that pose a significant risk to the aquatic environment or through it and for which monitoring data are insufficient substances, so they should be collected data at the level of the European Union. The European Commission adopts implementing acts to develop and update that list.

2. The substances or groups of substances that make up the first watchlist, and the indicative analytical method and the maximum acceptable limit of detection of the method defined in Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/495 of the Commission on March 20, 2015 setting up a watch list of substances for monitoring Union level in the field of water policy, in accordance with Directive 2008/105 / EC of the European Parliament and Council is established.

3. The duration of a period of continuous tracking Watchlist for any individual substance shall not exceed 4 years.

4. The monitoring of each substance on the list will be made in selected representative stations for at least a period of 12 months. Monitoring for substances included in the first watchlist begin no later than 14 September 2015. Monitoring of a new substance will start within six months after inclusion in the watchlist.

5. In ter.3 application of Article 8 of Directive 2008/105 / EC of 16 December on environmental quality standards in the field of water policy, the number of monitoring stations that correspond to Spain is of at least 20.

6. In selecting the representative stations, the frequency and timing of monitoring of each substance use patterns of the substance and its possible presence will be taken into account. Monitoring frequency not less than once a year.

7. May be suspended tracking particular whether there is sufficient, comparable, representative and recent data from existing monitoring programs or studies, provided they avail themselves of the technical guidelines developed by the Commission substance.

(1) CAS: Chemical Abstracts Service.

(2) This parameter is the EQS expressed as an annual average value (AA-EQS).

(3) Inland surface waters encompass rivers and lakes and artificial water bodies or very related modified.

(4) With regard to these substances, the values ​​of the NCA in inland surface waters vary depending on the water hardness under four categories.

Section B. Application of environmental quality standards of preferred substances

1. A surface water body, applying the AA-MA when the arithmetic mean of the different measures concentrations times during the year, each point representing the water body must not exceed the standard.

2. Water EQS laid down in this Annex are expressed as total concentrations in the whole water sample.

As an exception to the first paragraph, in the case of arsenic, copper, chromium, selenium and zinc (hereinafter 'metals') the EQS water refers to the dissolved concentration, ie the dissolved phase of a water sample obtained by filtration through 0.45 um membrane or any other equivalent or pretreatment, when indicated specifically, the bioavailable concentrations.

When the results of the controls with the corresponding NCA, you may consider:

A) natural background concentrations of metals and their compounds, where such concentrations prevent compliance with the value set by the corresponding NCA.

B) hardness, pH, dissolved organic carbon or other water quality parameters that affect the bioavailability of metals, for what you have to determine the bioavailable concentrations by appropriate bioavailability models.

3. The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, for the sake of standardization and comparability of results, may develop methodological guidelines in specifying and develop procedures for implementing the NCAs set out in paragraph A.

Procedure for establishing the EQS

To set the NCA in water, sediment or biota, will act in accordance with the provisions set out below.

1. When possible, data will be both timely and relevant for an extended time, for the taxa mentioned below period, provided they are relevant to the category and type of water bodies, as well as other taxa water for which data are available.

The base set of taxa are:

Algae or macrophytes.

Daphnia or representative organisms for saline waters.

Fish.

Adequate safety factors shall be determined in accordance with the nature and quality of available data and the guidance given in section 3.3.1 of Part II of "Technical guidance document in support of Directive 93/67 / EEC of 20 July 1993 on the risk assessment for new notified substances and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1488/94 of 28 June 1994 on the risk assessment existing substances "; Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 on the registration, evaluation and authorization of chemicals and the restrictions applicable to these substances (REACH) , establishing a European Chemicals Agency is established; or any other document replacing it with the safety factors set out in the following table:










Safety factor






At least one L (E) C50 from each of three trophic levels of the base assembly.





1000






One chronic NOEC (either fish or Daphnia or a representative organism for saline waters).





100






Two long NOEC from species representing two trophic levels (fish or Daphnia or a representative of salt water and algae body).





50






Chronic NOEC from at least three species (normally fish, Daphnia or a representative of salt water and algae body) representing three trophic levels.





10






Other cases, including field data or model ecosystems, which allow calculation and application of more precise safety factors.





Case by case assessment.





L (E) C50 or effective average lethal concentration. NOEC: no observed effect concentration.

2. In the event that available data on persistence and bioaccumulation, should be taken into account in deriving the final value of the NCA.

3. The NCA thus derived should be compared with any evidence from field studies. If anomalies appear, the derivation should be reviewed in order to calculate a more precise safety factor.

4. The resulting NCA must undergo a critical examination of expert and public consultation in order, inter alia, to allow the calculation of more precise safety factor.
