Good afternoon:

Many basins have generally an urban area in the Corine Land Cover methodology is aimed at "urban areas". In the case of water analysis parameters could be used BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demands), COD, sediments. The use of urban land contributes disproportionately to the contribution of pollutants.

I hope I have helped
