River Water Quality Monitoring

This dataset provides the raw data from river monitoring sites including Water Framework Directive monitoring sites. It should be noted that, as the dataset is in its raw state, it cannot be used to provide a WFD status without processing. The dataset does not show Limits of Detection or Limits of Quantitation which would require a value to be treated as a half value for WFD calculation. In addition both altitude and alkalinity affect status calculations for some parameters. The dataset may contain results which are erroneous due to typos, sampling error or contamination. Such data points are usually several orders of magnitude above expected values.
