The iBATHWATER project team presents to the responsible for the coastal water unit of the Catalan Water Agency (ACA) the quality stations installed within the framework of the project.
The stations, located on the Bogatell breakwater / Nova Icària beach and Somorrostro beach, analyse, automatically and continuously, the microbiological indicators of bathing water established by the Bathing Water Directive (D.2006/7/CE), as well as other physicochemical parameters.
With these data, real-time information on the quality of bathing water will be available, allowing more agile management in the detection of short-term pollution events, resulting from the overflows of the combined sewer systems during rainy days.
