  • Ministries,- central water authorities (policy

  • Regional authorities (permitting authorities)
  • District authorities (will be abolished at the

Ministries as central water authorities
  • Ministry of Agriculture acts as the central water

    sites Historical development of measured list of
    parameters

    reason) frequency 12 per year
  • Organic compounds (130 sampling sites, PAHs,
    PCBs, VOC, pesticides, etc.) frequency 12 per
    year

16
Ground Water Quality Monitoring
