  • The hydromorphological status was determined by a monitoring compliant with the Water Framework Directive (Directive 2000/60/EU). The elaboration of a structural quality mapping is one part of this monitoring. Within the scope of the work on the structural quality mapping, a total of 31 parameters in the area of the river bed, the river bank and the floodplain are assessed so that the structural quality mapping contains detailed information on the river morphology and the river continuity. In this case, the evaluation of the mapped sections is based on seven classes. The results of the evaluation were aggregated into an overall evaluation per mapped section.

In this case, the evaluation of the mapped sections is based on five classes. The areas river bed, left river bank, right riverbank, left floodplain and right floodplain are represented in 5 strips.

  • In the detailed programme of measures, the types of measures related to hydromorphology (HY) and urban wastewater management (SWW) which are defined in the catalogue of measures of the second river basin management plan, were assigned to the individual water bodies. The objective of this assignation is to identify for each water body those measures that will help to reduce the pressures and deficits present in the water body, thereby improving its status or maintaining its good status. The hydromorphological measures include the improvement of the ecological continuity, the renaturation of water courses as well as the regulation of the minimal flow. Some hydromorphological types of measures can have a positive effect on the reduction of floods.

  • Luxembourg is divided in 6 groundwater bodies: Upper Liassic, Middle Liassic, Lower Liassic, Triassic-Eastern, Triassic-Northern, Devon.

  • With regard to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive, specific types of watercourses have been designated for Luxembourg. As in the context of various works the German stream types (LAWA types) are used, these have also been assigned to the Luxembourgish surface water bodies.

  • The surface water typology was determined on the basis of geographical , geological, morphological and hydrological characteristics. The Luxembourgish surface water typology comprises six types. For all six types the reference conditions, which would be achieved if there were no anthropogenic pressures impacting surface waters, are described in fact sheets. The reference conditions correspond to the high status of surface water bodies.

  • Representation of heavily modified waterbodies which have been physically altered by human activity that they can not achieve good ecological status as defined by the water framework directive (DIR 2000/60/CE) and that no technical feasibility or cost-effective option exist to stop that human activity. These water bodies have the good ecological potential as the environmental objective. They have nevertheless to achieve good chemical status.
