Status, potential and quality requirements for lakes, watercourses, coastal and transitional waters

Handbook 2007:4 describes how quality requirements in bodies of surface water can be determined and monitored.

The aim of this handbook is to provide guidance when determining quality requirements for bodies of surface water as part of the work with the European Water Framework Directive (WFD) (2000/60/EC) in accordance with the Swedish Water Quality Management Ordinance (2004:660) and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's Regulations (NFS 2008:1) and General Guidelines on the Classification of and Environmental Quality Standards for Surface Water. Furthermore, the handbook is intended as a “tool-box” for how quality requirements for surface water can be determined.
