Within the context of the Research and Development Framework Programme IV (1994-1998) - Standards, Measurement and Testing Programme (SM&T), the European Commission funded a workshop to explore the technical feasibility of an a priori measurement approach for managing bathing water quality. The report presents the main conclusions of the groups of experts who were requested to clarify:

- The availability and applicability of models to predict bathing water quality;
- The feasibility of real time measurements;
- The inputs and measurements required for an a priori measurement approach;
- The credibility and limitations of the a priori measurement approach, ranking of variables, cost effectiveness and economic implications of the a priori measurement approach.

The report also includes some lectures, abstracts of individual presentations and posters presented at the workshop. kshop.
