Bathing water quality

A constant supervision

S. Boyer-Engel

The quality of water is a real challenge on seaside territories. The Deauville Coast is subjected to careful care. In 2009, the “Communauté de Communes Cœur Côte Fleurie” was rewarded with a “Certification France” for the good management of bathing water. It has implemented its own system of quality measurement complementing the supervision of the “Agence Régionale de la Santé”.

THE PRINCIPLE
controls are based on the microbiological quality of water. From June to September, 18 samples are taken and analyzed on every beach.
A report is published by the A.R.S. and transmitted to the municipalities that are charged with the distribution and posted close to the bathing areas. The results are available at the aid post and in the website of the Communauté de Communes Coeur Côte Fleurie.
