What is the state of our rivers which are floating by? This time we will focus on the most polluted region of Lithuania in terms of water – Lielupe River Basin District (RBD). It fully covers Pasvalys, Pakruojas and Birzai districts, large areas of Joniskis, Kupiskis, Rokiskis districts and the city of Siauliai. Why is Lielupe RBD one of the most polluted river basins in Lithuania?

This project aims to support Baltic States in implementing WFD and other directives concerning reducing priority hazardous substances in waters.
|Project duration: 2009 January – 2011 December|
There are 11 hazardous substances of specific concern to the Baltic Sea. These are dioxins, tin, brominated compounds, perifluoroctane sulfonate, hexabromocyclododecane, nonylphenols, octylphenols, chlorinated paraffins, endosulphane, Hg, Cd. The information available on the sources, inputs and management options does, however, not allow for development of programmes of measures addressing these substances in the whole Baltic Sea region. There is a need to jointly evaluate the major sources and to quantify the inputs of the target substances to the Baltic Sea in order to be able to develop the measures needed to reduce the levels of contaminants in the Baltic Sea to an acceptable level. There is also still a lack of knowledge especially on the Eastern side of the Baltic Sea to control hazardous substances, both within authorities and industries.
