Project overview

Joint central European actions for improving quality of urban bathing waters

When it’s hot in summer there is nothing better than taking a swim. However, in central European cities this might not be a good idea: 65% of urban surface waters meet only minimum quality standards. The project UrbanBlueHealth improves this condition by first assessing health impacts and then creating new solutions for cleaning up urban lakes and rivers. Amongst others, the partners develop a Blue Health Repository for monitoring and test it in pilots. Water site managers and urban beach operating bodies are trained to implement action plans, and a digital platform makes the new solutions available to other cities.
