Press conference by Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC, on the Annual Report on the Quality of Bathing Water in the EU

Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, gave a press conference on the bathing water quality. The quality of bathing water across Europe declined slightly between 2009 and 2010, but the overall quality was still high. More than nine out of 10 bathing water sites met the minimum requirements. Cyprus was the star performer, with 100% of its bathing water sites meeting strict guide values, followed by Croatia (97.3%), Malta (95.4%), Greece (94.2%) and Ireland (90.1%).
The results were from the annual Bathing Water Report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the EC, which compared water quality in more than 21,000 coastal and inland bathing sites across the 27 Member States of the EU. The Commission has also adopted new signs and symbols that were used to inform the public on bathing water classification and on bathing restrictions.
