The quality of bathing water

Permanent monitoring

S. Boyer-Engel

Water quality is a real issue for seaside areas. Also, the inDeauville coastline is the focus of attention. In 2009, the Cœur Côte Fleurie Community of Communes was rewarded for its management of bathing water with a "France Certification". It has implemented its own quality measurement system which is in addition to the surveillance of the Regional Health Agency (ARS).

The controls relate to the microbiological quality of the waters. From June to September, 20 samples per range are taken and analyzed.
A bulletin is published by the ARS and sent to town halls which are responsible for broadcasting and posting near bathing places. Go to the aid station to consult the results and on the site of the Community of Communes Heart Côte Fleurie.
