After publishing the Water Framework Directive, integrated water quality monitoring, including biological, chemical, physicochemical and hydromorphological quality elements, was gained special importance. Monitoring and assessment of hydromorphological quality elements are still challenged issue because of unstandardized applications in hydromorphological monitoring and assessment activities. In this study, hydromorphology are discussed as objective and scope. To monitor and assess hydromorphological feature of waterbodies, a new monitoring and assessment approach which takes into account the features affecting the hydromorphological parameters was addressed. A standard methodology which can be applied for different waterbody types and applied in different river basins characteristics was developed for monitoring and assessment of hydromorphological features of rivers and the methodology was applied at seven different river basins in Turkey. The method gave the expected assessment results for the waterbodies in all basins and provided sufficient consistency to be used as a standard method across the country.
