Description
Summary:The Framework Directive (WFD) of the European Union (EU) aims to achieve good status for water bodies in EU, but there occurs a delay in its implementation related to priority pollutant substances. A key issue in water protection and management is that priority pollutants should be monitored not only in the water bodies, but also in sediments and the biota. Distribution between the water and sediment phases is strongly affected by numerous factors, including the polarity of the analytes, as well as amorphous organic matter and suspended matter content in the water body, and are often affected by methodological parameters. As a result, certain pollutants will be detected in the water phase, others in the sediment, again others in both, as indicated by reported cases in the scientific literature. This challenge is illustrated in the case of project “Sediment-quality Information, Monitoring and Assessment System” (SIMONA) (2018-2021) within the Danube Transnational Program.
