Improving Coastal and Recreational Waters (ICREW) was a project funded by the European Union’s INTERREG IIIB programme for the Atlantic Area. It involved nineteen partner organisations and five Atlantic Area Member States: France, Ireland, Portugal Spain and UK. The ICREW project aimed to assist Member States in improving their compliance with the Bathing Water Directive and to provide the tools and techniques to assist Member States to comply with the requirements of the revised Bathing Water Directive. The project ran from April 2003 to April 2006 and ICREW partners were invited to present the project outputs to the EC Bathing Waters Committee in October 2006 in Brussels.
