How can the sources of pollutants be better identified and how can emissions be reduced? How can the presence of pollutants be linked to the observed ecological impacts and how can the assessment of water status be improved? Finally, how can the “emerging compounds of most concern” be identified in order to start working immediately on regulating them and attenuating their impacts? Over the past five years in France, these questions were the focus of an unprecedented R&D effort in the framework of the national 2010-2013 Micropollutants plan and a number of more specific action plans targeting PCBs, plant-protection products, pharmaceutical residues, urban wastewater management, etc. The national symposium was an occasion to review the work undertaken.

Recap of the symposium on Monitoring, assessing and reducing chemical contamination of aquatic environments, organised by Onema and Ineris, held on 17 and 18 June 2013.
