In Annex 1 in »FAIRWAY Project Deliverable 3.1, all 28 AEI according to COM final 0508/2006 and applied on EU-level are listed (COM 2006, eurostat 2018). The AEI are allocated to domains and subdomains of the DPSIR framework.

In the table below we have compiled all agri-drinking water quality indicators (ADWIs), which were reported to us during a survey among the in the FAIRWAY case studies and we supplemented the table with indicators according to a literature review. They are grouped according to whether they are relevant at farm (driving force and pressure indicators) or drinking water level (state/impact indicators) or if they provide a link between the two.
