The data set contains an SQL-dump of a PostgreSQL data base. This data base contains concentrations of hazardous substances and other water quality parameters in different environmental compartments:

  • river water (water and suspended sediments)
  • ground water
  • waste water (treated and untreated) and sewage sludge
  • storm water runoff from combined and separate sewer systems
  • atmospheric deposition
  • soil

Data from many different data sources were collected, cheked and combined and meta data were harmonized to allow for a combined data evaluation.

The SQL-file was exported from a PostgreSQL 15.2 data base and compressed using 7zip into a zip-file ( Text-encoding is UTF-8.

A short documentation (documentation_inventory_db_V1.0.pdf) and a listof known issues with the data which could not be resolved before publication  (List_of_known_issues_V1.0.pdf)  are enclosed as PDF files.
