Question for written answer E-005050-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ulrike Müller (ALDE)

 Subject:  Bathing Waters Quality Report 2017 — Freigericht-Ost Lake
 Answer in writing 

In the Bathing Waters Quality Report 2017, Freigericht-Ost Lake in the municipality of Kahl am Main in Germany is classified as having poor water quality. This classification follows the closure of the swimming area for three weeks in 2017 after contamination was found in the children’s area there.

There were no negative findings from measurements at the three other sampling locations; and after measures were taken against the contamination, there were once again no negative findings from measurements at the sampling location affected.

The competent health authority of Landratsamt Aschaffenburg (Aschaffenburg County Administration Office) is therefore of the opinion that the classification as ‘poor’ is incorrect, as this was a temporary disturbance at one of four sampling locations.

1. Are the Commission and the European Environment Agency aware of the objections of the municipality and the Landratsamt, and are the relevant results from the measurements available, including the results from after remedial measures were taken?

2. Does the Commission or the European Environment Agency plan to correct the classification of the lake’s water quality?

3. If not, how is this decision justified?
