Water accounts

Source: SEEA-Water 2007; rev. Version 2008

A quantitative description of water flows between natural water resources and the economy, and between individual economic sectors, is shown in “physical use and supply tables". A quantitative description of the natural water resources is given in “physical asset tables”. Economic data are shown in “hybrid tables”. 

Pollutant loads are accounted for by sector (and by taking company-internal or external water treatment into consideration) as net emissions in “emission accounts”, under the respective economic sectors from which they originate.
