The European Environment Agency (EEA) provides publicly available geo-data which can be used for environmental modelling in the EU.
In the case of water quality data provided by the Water Information System in Europe (WISE) - which was created applying the Water Framework Directive (WFD) - has the potential to be used for higher tier aquatic risk assessment.
