Water monitoring stations used by the EPA and Local Authorities are registered on EDEN Monitoring Data System by an application called the Feature Coding Tool (FCT). This tool applies a unique code to river, lake, transitional, coastal or groundwater stations registered on it.

Provenance information Station points are located at bridges, with the OSI Discovery Series 1:50,000 maps used as the source. The station is generally positioned in the centre of the bridge as shown on the map; the actual sample access point may be either side of the bridge. In 2010 a data quality project was run to capture all station locations accurately. Where the co-ordinates did not map on a river the station location information was used to place the station at the correct location. Station numbers get larger downstream so station locations occur in the correct order upstream and downstream but for stations that have not been visited in a long time this location may not always be the exact point where the sample was taken.
