RESTORATION MEASURES: Monitoring of water quality and quantity

The objective is the continuous and coherent monitoring of lake’s Doiran water quality and quantity. Monitoring is proposed to be carried for parameters indicative of the biological, hydromorphological and general physico-chemical quality elements, most sensitive to pressures to which lake Doiran is subject. Taking into account the requirements of the European Water Framework Directive (60/2000/EC), the monitoring program shall include at the minimum, the following parameters:                                                                                                          

 

     
     Surface waters

  • Lake ’s Doiran water level. 

  • Discharge (for the streams inflowing lake Doiran on a regular basis). 

  • Physicochemical water quality data (NH4-N, NO2-N, NO3-N, PO4-P, Dissolved oxygen, Biochemical Oxygen Demand, pH, Electrical conductivity Turbidity and Visibility-Secchi disk). 

  • Biological quality elements.


      Groundwaters

  • Fluctuation of the groundwater table

 

 
 

The monitoring system is also proposed to include measurement of meteorological parameters in the watershed (i.e. air temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, solar radiation, wind velocity – direction, barometric pressure and evaporation).

Furthermore, and given that the area of Lake Doiran has been designated as a Special Protected Area, the monitoring system shall include monitoring of birds dependent on water.
