Lineage The EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) establishes a framework for the protection, improvement and management of surface and ground waters. The overall aim for surface waters, which include coastal waters is to achieve at least 'good ecological status' and 'good chemical status', by 2015, as well as preventing deterioration in those waters that have been classified as 'high' or 'good'. This is the interim classification of coastal waters. It is based primarily on information and data collected by the EPA, Marine Institute and Inland Fisheries Ireland between 2006-2008. Assessments of the conservation status of protected areas carried out by NPWS were also taken in to account. A number of different elements such as Hydromorphological Quality Elements, Specific Pollutant Elements, Biological Quality Elements, General Physico-Chemical Elements and other factors such as protective area status were assessed to give an overall status result to each water body. Each water body is assigned the European coastal water body code, member state code, the coastal water body typology code, the water body category code, the relevant river basin district code, the status, Status date and the originators initials. Not all water bodies have been monitored and so the cluster grouping is in the attributes as it has been necessary to extrapolate the interim classification status results obtained from water bodies that are monitored to those that are not. When developing the monitoring network, water bodies were selected to allow the data be extrapolated to the non-monitored areas. Extrapolation was carried using a statistical cluster analysis that grouped monitored and non-monitored water bodies with similar characteristics. The classification status of the monitored water bodies in each cluster was then applied to the other non-monitored ones in each group. Transitional and coastal lagoons were analysed separately as very little monitoring information was available.
